Stodgy and Soupy – Misunderstood 
Yamisi Aribisala, author of Longthroat Memoirs: Soup, Sex and Nigerian Taste Buds, says that “Nigerian perceptions of food and relationships with food traverse the borders of spirit and body. . . . Nigerian food is often stodgy and soupy, but it is also misunderstood, atrociously photographed, not yet given its due. It’s a multifaceted cultural treasure trove full of intriguing stories. It might not be gastronomically illustrious but it is energetic and good-hearted.”

A Passion for Bicycles and Vegan Food
“Los Loosers is the brainchild of Mariana Blanco, who quit her job as a journalist in 2011 with no savings or business plan, just a passion for bicycles and vegan food.” Cyclists deliver vegan takes on classic Mexican dishes to all parts of Mexico City.
