The concept of ‘dark food’, like ‘dark tourism’, is directly linked to consumption and how identities are forged by making sense of the past through present-day cultural memories. In this bonus episode with Alessandra Pino, co-author of A Gothic Cookbook, we discuss her research on understanding dark food through the Cuban legacies of slavery and sugar plantations. And how the ‘recreation of traumatic memories through the medium of food’ provide a face for the historically oppressed, exiled, and diasporic communities originating from Cuba.
