As we nail down the schedule for my book tour this spring, I’m so happy to announce that one of the dates will be in my hometown of Washington, DC. I will sit down with Washington Post Food and Travel Editor and fellow cookbook author Joe Yonan at the Sixth & I for what’s surely to be a lively conversation about Mexican food and culture. I will also sign copies of the book following the talk. If you live in the DC area, or will be anywhere near in March, I hope you will join us!

It is a delicious and edible lid that opens a world of how a people, a country, a community live: how they grow, buy and sell ingredients, how they cook, serve, interact, share, celebrate; ultimately, how their lives are built and experienced.”

The Blair House will be hosting an event called “Taste of Mexico” honoring Mexican culture in advance of the upcoming State Visit by Mexican President Felipe Calderon.
Led by Ambassador Capricia Marshall, the US Chief of Protocol, and the Mexican Ambassador to the United States, Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan and his wife, the event will bring together an international DC Youth Group. Together, they will learn about Mexican culture and gastronomy beyond what Americans typically think it to be.
