[OP-ED]: Take this taco and make it your own

 06/30/2017 - 11:32
Gustavo Arellano, author of “Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America.” said: “[It is laughable] that white people aren’t supposed to -- pick your word -- rip off or appropriate or get ‘inspired’ by Mexican food, that comida mexicana is a sacrosanct tradition only Mexicans and the white girls we marry can participate in.

Picture this: Taco fixins in a tortilla cone. A flour tortilla cone, no less. 

It comes to you courtesy of a new Food Network explainer video titled “Taco Cones are the New Tacos” in which a young Asian-American woman demonstrates how to “eat two tacos at the same time” by baking tortillas into an ice cream cone shape, filling them with ground beef and adding toppings.

[OP-ED]: Tomen este taco y háganlo suyo

 06/30/2017 - 11:26
Gustavo Arellano, autor de “Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America” expresó: “[Es risible] que se suponga que los blancos no deben—escojan el término—robar o apropiarse o ‘inspirarse’ en la comida mexicana, que la comida mexicana sea una tradición sacrosanta en la que sólo pueden participar los mexicanos y las muchachas blancas con las que nos casamos.

Imaginen lo siguiente: los acompañamientos de un taco en un cono de tortilla. Un cono de tortilla de  harina de trigo, además. 

Ese producto les llega como cortesía de un video nuevo de la Food Network, titulado “Los conos de taco son los nuevos tacos”, en que una joven mujer asiático-americana demuestra cómo “comer dos tacos al mismo tiempo”, usando tortillas y convirtiéndolas en un cono de helado, que rellena con carne picada y otros acompañamientos.
