They say that travel changes you and this trip did. An immersion in both Spanish and the kitchen; a story on why Oaxaca inspired me will be up later next week.
It will include cooking with the award-winning, international chef and culinary expert Susana Trilling at Seasons of My Heart and Top Chef Mexico contestant Rodolfo Castellano at Origen Oaxaca. Both were very different and a special part of the story.
Find out why the Mezcal tour to San Augustin de las Juntas, Santa Catarina Minas and San Baltazar Chichicapam was a humble journey to the sophisticated tables at the restaurants in Oaxaca and the enriching social aspect of the markets in Etla, Tlacolula and Ocotlan, where indigenous people taught us a lesson in why Oaxaca is so fascinating.
A market where we’re always lost, Mercado de Abastos, became a source of amazing products like chilies you can only find in Oaxaca…and there are many.
It’s good to be back in San Miguel de Allende, where the variety of food available - you name it; everything from Mexican, French, Italian or Peruvian - is an obvious advantage to living here.
Eat up San Miguel… Sabores San Miguel (June 17, 18 and 19 at Juarez Park) and SMA Food Festival (July 15, 16 and 17 at the Rosewood Hotel) will be here before you know it.
