My beloved University of Toronto Museum Studies professor Cheryl Meszaros I hope is smiling from heaven! I dedicated my book New Orleans con Sabor Latino: The History and Passion of Latino Cooking to her. She died of cancer during my second year of graduate school. She encouraged me to write this book and do my internship at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum. It was so painful to return to campus after our summer internship and to lose her before we graduated. Thank you University of Toronto Faculty of Information Studies for sending me a picture of you all holding the book before my book is officially part of the library! Muchas Gracias Adriani y Alfredo!! R.I.P. Cheryl Meszaros!!!
