In Latino culture food not only serves as a source of nourishment, but as a means of unification and socialization among members within the community. Traditional family recipes are passed on from one generation to the next and among friends in various social circles. The emphasis on food generates an unavaiodable merging between the Latino and American culture by infusing Latino flavors in many American communities and dishes. The cooking and preparation process brings Latino families together to collaborate and assemble a spread of conventional dishes enjoyed by all. Special occasions oftentimes revolve around the kitchen with family members coming together to engage in a dining and social exprience. Latino tastes and distinctive flavors serve as a perpetual reminder of home and illicit a shared sense of cultural heritage. The comfort associated with the enjoyment of Latino dishes is widespread and prevalent among Latino and immigrant communities alike.
