Illyanna Maisonet's book "Diasporican: A Puerto Rican Cookbook" is a culinary journey that documents her family's Puerto Rican recipes and preserves the disappearing foodways of the island.

With over 90 recipes, including classics like Tostones, Pernil, and Arroz con Gandules, as well as modern creations like Pinchos with BBQ Guava Sauce and Rabbit Fricassee with Chayote, the book showcases the richness of Puerto Rican cuisine.

Illyanna traces the flavor traditions of the island to its Taino, Spanish, African, and United States' influences, reflecting the diversity and ingenuity of its people.

The visual record, accompanied by travel and food photography, explores the connections between food, family, history, conflict, and migration.
