Episode 6

Puerto Rico ‐ Arroz con Gandules

Born and raised in a musical family of five talented brothers and sisters, Tiara Hernandez’s family can trace their roots to both the Philippines and Puerto Rico.  In this episode she describes how Gandule Rice was the comfort dish she grew up with and loved.  Host Ed Kenney travels with Tiara to Puerto Rico to uncover the origin of this dish.  We see it prepared many times and in many ways but it is the shared meal with her sisters and brother that makes this experience whole.
