I'm Lari, aka. Larisanjou: a teacher, writer and artist of Puerto Rican heritage from the United States, now living in France. I love making food and art, and RENDERED is a project that combines those loves with my curiosity in the world around me.
RENDERED is a monthly newsletter. Every month, I research a food-related topic, write an essay about it, and create my own original illustrations to go along. In my essays, food and history often intersect with personal anecdotes and other wide-ranging subjects like etymology, food science, economics, social issues, the legacy of colonialism, and more.
Sign up for free and receive one illustrated essay on the 14th of every month. I look forward to sharing my finds with you.
