K’oben is finally available!

K’oben is a product of two anthropologists enamored with the food, technology, history, and peoples of the Yucatan peninsula.  Both of us have done field work in Quintana Roo and were looking for a way to incorporate recipes and histories that make the Maya of this region unique from the other Maya groups more often referenced in ethnographies.

A few of the final chapters reflect on the current state of affairs with food in the region…junk food, tourism, and UNESCO designations are the current hot topics.  It’s a great read for those interested in history, culture, and food of the Maya peoples.
