Building on the exhibit, “Enchiladas: A Global Journey to New Mexico,” on display at Gutierrez Hubbell House May-August 2021, Dr. Stone examines the ways that migration, communication, and trade have helped shape local food traditions.

Learn how food is an integral part of our network of cultural connection here in New Mexico.
