Latin America is a vast region that spans twenty-one countries and almost the entirety of the western hemisphere. Unfortunately, most people are largely unaware of the breadth, diversity, and healthful qualities of many Latin foods. Educating the public about the cuisines of Latin America lies at the heart of the CFA’s work.

Many Latin American foods enjoy wide popularity in the United States, and Latin flavors represent one of the hottest menu growth trends in our industry. The research conducted by the CFA aims to provide a better understanding and appreciation of the cuisines and cultural foodways of Latin America.  We invite you to learn more about the regions we have visited and explored through our videos and recipes.
