Camila Bianca Casanas is a badass. She is also a holistic chef, herbalist, wellness practitioner and activist (among other things). The California-native uses food to explore our connection, and often disconnection, to the food systems we rely on, and offers a smart and tasty critique of a failing system. Her cooking includes whole seasonal foods, and her discourse includes insightful comments concerning the colonization of food and the resounding impact this process has on community. Camila’s food is driven by her creativity and a deep desire to replace harmful food systems with a more supportive and community-focused alternative.
Madre caught up with Camila in Los Angeles and asked her a few questions about her craft.
