Oral Histories

The SFA oral history program documents life stories from the American South. Collecting these stories, we honor the people whose labor defines the region. If you would like to contribute to SFA’s oral history collections, please send your ideas for oral history along with your CV or Resume and a portfolio of prior oral history work to annemarie@southernfoodways.org.

ORAL HISTORY

Nora Guerra


Guate-Linda

Nora Guerra was raised in Pasaco, Guatemala. She moved to Florida from Guatemala in 1996. She moved to Charlotte from Florida in 2000, leaving a cleaning job for an opportunity to open a bakery, la panaderia Quetzal, with her brother and business partner. In 2016, they added a restaurant, Guate-Linda. They keep Guatemalan food and culture alive and central to both the menu and atmosphere. As the head chef Nora Guerra brings Guatemalan “sazon” to all her dishes, a chance to experience Chapin culture and flavor.
