I was heartsick from lack of travel during this seemingly endless pandemic until I realized that all the culinary adventure I need is right at home in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur. Join me as I share in the Ruiz family tradition of empanada night, where the family recipe includes teamwork, lots of muscle, and patience. The end result is something you simply cannot find any where else.

Every major city in the US is harboring a taco-trove. Some are brightly adorned, mariachi-infused tourist destinations but others are low-key neighborhood collectives sharing century-old family recipes from every corner of Mexico. In either case, a day of exploration is a day well spent. Minneapolis/St. Paul did not disappoint!

Verdolagas en salsa verde con carne de cerdo (purslane in green salsa with pork) was the single most delicious new dish I made in 2018 - and one of the easiest! A perfect harmony of herbaceous, tangy, and spicy notes with the savory sweetness of golden brown pork.

Rita is nestled off the beaten path within Atotxa Plaza, a tunnel crossing away from the train station. Clearly popular with the neighbors, Chef Ismael Iglesias' firstborn establishment offers elevated cuisine featuring equal parts tradition and creativity.
