If you’ve ever been lucky enough to experience life inside a house in Mexico, you learn pretty quick that the kitchen is the heart of the home.
But it is more than that. Perhaps more than any other part of the house, the kitchen holds the secrets of the family. Dreams are shared, tragedies are explained and, much to the delight of the family, recipes are created. Salsas, molés, special flavors and solutions to the problems of the day are all dreamed up in the kitchen.I’ve had the wonderful privilege to experience many a kitchen around Mexico. I’ve been in church kitchens in Ensenada, restaurant kitchens with some of the best chefs in Oaxaca, and everything in between.
Here’s a inside look at just a few of the kitchens I’ve been lucky enough to experience, off the typical tourist track in My Mexico, deep in the heart of Oaxaca! And if you want a closer look, contact me and I’ll make sure you get a chance to have a great meal from one of these great cocinas.
