Everywhere you go Mexico

It seems to me that maybe I have been making too much of my recent trip to Mexico and that y’all might be getting a little tired on yet another post about Mexico!  But hey that’s why we travel, right?  To be inspired and excited by new experiences, cultures, foods and, er, cocktails?

I’ve been home a week now and figured I could do one more Mexican post and then I would stop and move on to a recipe about Spicy Asian Chicken and Hand Pulled Noodles…but before I did that I was planning on posting today a recipe for Mescal Margarita’s and that would be that, promise…. but then I opened my mail this morning and there was the first Video of 2014 from the newly married Perennial Plate kids (Congrats Daniel and Mira!) and it’s called One Minute in Mexico.  So my hands were tied, I had no choice but to post this boldly graphic celebration of Mexican Food.  It’s really great and I’m sure you will enjoy it and besides even if for some reason you are grumpy and over the Mexican thing, it’s only a minute….

After this video you will want to do two things: immediately go out and eat Mexican food (or make some at home) and have a Mescal Margarita, the recipe for which I will post later today around cocktail hour.

All the international travel videos that The Perennial Plate have done this year have been made possible by the folks at Intrepid Travel.

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com

    Hey Urbanfoodguy, I’m just home from Mexico myself, where my family and I spent two weeks in mind blowing Mexico City. We ate with, and like, the locals (my husband’s family), and had such a variety of deliciousness that I should be on a tread mill right now to start working some of it off! I did not eat any bugs, but they were offered at some of the places we ate. Buen provecho!

    I had to rewatch this several times, hitting the pause button. So many nice images.

    I, for one, have not reached South of the Border saturation. I have thoroughly enjoyed your Mexican field notes!
