Culinary contributions: What was prepared on griddles in the northern Caribbean — Andy Ciofalo and Corinne Hofman


Towards a comparative analysis of African-influenced ceramic motifs in the Spanish Americas: Hispaniola and Peru — Marlieke Ernst and Brendan J.M. Weaver

Earlier pre-conceptions viewed the griddle as exclusively entangled with the production of manioc (cassava) flatbread in the Caribbean. Oher starch analyses of Caribbean griddles indicated their use in preparing a broad suite of dietary plants but not manioc. The results from our study have also demonstrated that a broad suite of vegetal-based foods were prepared, but at two of the sites, evidently manioc as well (courtesy of Andy Ciofalo).
