The RCA is the only conference devoted solely to the research and development section of our food industry – focusing on Culinology, the blending of culinary arts and food science. Networking, education sessions, demos, workshops, and tradeshow experience are just a few of the key learnings that happen at the RCA conference.

Puerto Rican fare, or “cocina criolla,” uses local spices and ingredients such as coriander, papaya, cacao, nispero, apio, plantains, and yampee and is heavily influenced by Spanish, African, Taino,

and American cuisines.

The national dish of Puerto Rico is Arroz con Gandules. It includes spicy chorizo and roasted pork, red peppers, olives, freshly cooked pigeon peas, and a flavorful sofrito sauce atop a steaming bed of yellow rice.
