A few weeks ago a dear friend said to me, as dear friends do: “There’s already a bazillion food blogs in the universe . . . [it’s like] spitting into the wind.”
How encouraging. Sigh. My feelings were a little hurt but she had a point.
So I haven’t been posting, I’ve just been cooking and eating, conversing and contemplating while slowly surrendering to a passion that is all too obvious…
Every trip to the market produces a basket full of blue corn tortillas, mangos, beans, bunches of cilantro and epazote. The comments I leave on my fellow food bloggers’ recipes say things like, “Yum! Pepitas [pumpkin seeds] in a cake! I think pricking this cake then drizzling it with sweetened condensed milk+ evaporated milk+ heavy cream would make for a unique rendition of TRES LECHES…” And if you’ve been following Gabriela’s Kitchen you’ve noticed that more than half the recipes are Mexican or Mexican inspired.
So here you have it:
Gabriela’s Kitchen: Authentic Mexican and Latin Inspired Home Cooking
But if you are looking for a little traditional Latin spice, please allow me to share my profound love for the simple depth of Mexican and Latin Inspired Home Cooking as I re-launch this site in the next few weeks.
As always, we love dinner guests and we hope to see you soon! xogabriela
