The Secret Kitchen

The Secret Kitchen is the monthly Culinary Anthropologist supperclub that has been running since January 2010.  For the first time, Anna is hosting guest chef and fellow anthropologist Claudia Prieto Piastro from Mexico to create a special Mexican menu. 

Bookings for the Secret Kitchen must be paid for in advance to be confirmed.


Claudia Prieto Piastro and the surprising story of the taco

Claudia Prieto-Piastro is a Mexican PhD student at Kings College London.  Her research uses an anthropological approach to analyse how food is related to the construction of nationalism in Mexico and Israel. 

Our dinner will not only present the traditional and delicious flavours of Mexican cuisine, but also demonstrate the roles which colonialism and migration have played in the kitchen.  Come along to discover and taste the surprising story of the taco!
