In addition to humor, Díaz has a strong connection to Cuban food, especially black beans.

“Cuban food is a very important part of my life. Every Christmas we cook Cuban feasts and it is the tradition that we keep. At home, I love cooking Cuban dishes.” In fact, the only Spanish words she learned as a child were “ropa vieja”, “arroz con pollo” and “cerdo asado”.

“There are times when I need to eat black beans, rice and a steak with grilled onion or a salad with avocado, because if I don’t I’ll melt,” the artist confessed.
