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!

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day — but it does mark the brilliant Mexican military triumph over Napoleon III’s invasion force on May 5th, 1962. The defeat hampered the French to such an extent that they could no longer provide help to the American Confederate cause, which certainly contributed to its downfall the following year. Plenty to celebrate, north and south of the border!
In collaboration with Chef de Cuisine Alfredo Solis, we will demonstrate the preparation of four dishes from the Cinco de Mayo tasting menu.
