Tex-Mex is a good platform to examine the distinction between cultural appropriation and appreciation. Texas is known for its Tex-Mex cuisine. Tex-Mex, as its name implies, is a combination of Mexican and American dishes created in the Rio Grande Valley, which is the part of Texas closest to Mexico.

We will invite a chef from the UMass Dining who is an expert at whipping up sumptous dishes to  demonstrate and  teach students how to make a Mexican dish. Students have the opportunity to learn how to make and try the taste of an authentic Mexican dish.
