Mariana is the Email Editor for the Spruce Eats.
Mariana's introduction to digital publishing was through writing, primarily in the form of culture criticism and essays. Naturally, she's most drawn to all the places where the world of food intersects with larger social and political trends. She spends a lot of time thinking about the ways our cultures and identities inform the way we cook, eat, and share food. You can find her writing all over the internet.
Mariana received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied U.S. and Latin American history.
