Take out your sombreros…shake your maracas…slap your conga…and get into a Latin vibe because A Culinary Tour Around the World is going South of the Border! We’re headed to Mexico, Latin + South America and a few Caribbean Islands.
Since we’re quickly approaching the holiday season and we’ll all be busy, this is a ‘save-the-date’ notice. Embarkation is scheduled for January 11, 2010.The first stop is Mexico, a colorful country that has so much more to offer than tacos, burritos and the Mexican Hat Dance. Qué viva Mejico! After that, we will visit El Salvador, Nicaragua, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Jamaica, Haiti, Puerto Rico and Cuba. 10 weeks on the virtual road.
Cook’s Choice. Last year, we prepared a ‘national’ dish of our choice at each destination. I thought I’d shake it up a bit this year for you (and me) so I’m creating “Cook’s Choice”.
Details. A final itinerary and further information will be posted towards the end of the year. Meantime, if you want to start researching the various cuisines, váyanse! (go for it).
In 2009 we visited 13 countries in 13 weeks and provided about 130 recipes for our readers. To revisit those countries for a taste of the local cuisine, click here.
