Whenever we’re traveling through Mexico, we often look for restaurant recommendations by asking the people who live here “where’s your favorite place to eat.”
But the most common response received is “mi casa” (my home).
Really, there’s nothing that beats home-cooked Mexican food, using family recipes passed down and perfected over generations. We’ve discovered this firsthand, here in Patzcuaro, where we’re on our latest housesit.
There’s a caretaker here who helps with cleaning and other tasks. Esperanza is a super sweet and wonderful señora. She’s become our friend and it’s always great to practice our Spanish with her. One of our favorite topics is comida (food)! She always insists on cooking a local lunch.
Whenever we’re here together, she’ll set off to gather local ingredients from the market down the street. Then she whips up some incredible feasts that are such a treat! There’s always an agua fresca, a soup, and a very filling lunch, all made with love.
So for #FoodieFriday this week, we thought we’d share some of her fantastic home-cooking. (But maybe don’t click through, if you’re reading while hungry.) ... See MoreSee Less
What a treat...the food looks divine, and Esperanza sounds a wonderful local. I loved having “a maid who cooks” whilst living in Asia, I still remember fondly the lunches she made
How wonderful that you get to enjoy the home cooked meals! Mexican cuisine is my favorite, but the best part of Mexico are the people!i
Looks incredible. 😁
It’s a pleasure to read your posts b/c I’m always learning...the posts are always interesting, fun and/or informative. Thank you.
