Imagine a world without pizza, spaghetti sauce, or Thai curry! If not for the explorers that brought Latin American crops to the rest of the world, it could’ve been the norm. The foods that originated in Latin America had had a huge influence on not only our Southern California agriculture and cuisine, but dishes and crops all over the world. The explorers that landed in the Americas definitely changed the way we eat forever when they brought these new foods to the new world, as well as back to Europe. Take a look at what the Latin America introduced to the world.
Though we can certainly see the Latin American flavor in all of these natural goodies, we are so thankful that many have become such a big part of foods all over, and that we can grow so much locally!
