Wine and cheese are two words usually associated with places like Napa Valley and France, not the dry dusty climes of Baja California. But that is exactly where I was […]
Who knew over 20 years ago when Dave Miller first visited Mexico that it would become his adopted country.
Since that first visit, Dave has facilitated hundreds of groups traveling in Mexico. It takes a special person to be able to bridge the divide between the to cultures. Equally at home in the typical suburban three bedroom home in the United States or the small block home in a village in Mexico, Dave is that guy.
For the family who has never traveled in Mexico, to the person who is ready to venture off the typical tourist trail and explore something new, Dave Miller's Mexico brings a unique perspective. It is a perspective gleaned from years of travel and experiences that few will ever match.
Join him on his journey and experience Mexico as few have, step by step as he seeks to share the culture, the art, the food and the richest resource of all, the people of Mexico with you.
I first became aware of this mezcal through Eduardo Belaunzarán of Wahaka Mezcal. We asked Eduardo, who also writes Mezcaleando, if he would give us his list of 5 Mezcals You Have to Experience and Jarabe de Pico was on this list. Fast forward a few weeks and as I was […]
I’ve worked in San Baltazar Guelavila for years and recently had the opportunity to visit Maestro Mezcalero Gregorio Martinez at his palenque. Gregorio is the man behind El Jolgorio’s Tobalá.

Eduardo Belaunzarán, of Wahaka Mezcal, in his 5 Mezcals Everyone Needs to Experience, named Jarabe de Pico as one you should try. That’s how I met Albert Carballo, Horacio Arenas and Clemente Martinez, the men behind Jarabe de Pico. With their brand in my mind, I saw their booth at the […]
It was a magical day. I went with a couple of friends to escape the pressures of working in the city. We left with two missions. Relax and to find some […]
It’s not just tortillas. Tamales, hauraches, atole, sopes, memelas and literally hundreds of other food options available in Mexico. What’s the common link? Corn… or as we say in Spanish, maiz. […]
One of the things you learn pretty quick if you get off the beaten path here in Oaxaca is that we eat a lot of bugs. Few things evoke the […]
More than 20 kids showed up. From places in Oaxaca with names like Eloxochitlán, San Baltazar Guelevila, San Dionesio Ocotepec and Xitla. They came to work, learn and have fun. […]
