This paper aims to explain food mappings as a methodology to research spatial-temporal aspects of food relations as experienced from the cultural perspectives of people in specific communities. It proposes the concept of foodmaps as a useful tool to trace gendered boundaries of home among working class immigrant communities. I ground this discussion through sample foodmaps taken from fieldwork among Dominican communities in New York City and reflections on Dominico-Mexican food alliances. I conclude with some implications of food mappings, suggesting directions for future research on Greater Mexico and "Latino" food studies in the US.
