The Fascinating History Behind the Woman Who Inspired the Concept of Merida's Newest Culinary Hot Spot: Micaela Mar y Leña
“Mi little girl taught me how to write, and asked me to tell my life story--how to describe the smell of the sea? The texture of firewood? How can I write about my passion without writing about the kitchen? I should write my recipes, my memories, memories of a seafood and wood-fired kitchen.[Town of] Comal de Pineda.October 2, of the year of our heavenly father 1897. --Micaela

Did you leave room for the Rosca de Reyes?Christmas season not over yet...
For those of you who live in Mexico, it’s that time of year again. For those of you just visiting or if you’re new to Mexican traditions, welcome to another quite enjoyable festivity. You may have noticed the large round, colorful cakes appearing in supermarket aisles and bakery windows. These are the Rosca de Reyes and they are part of a beautiful, Christian holiday in many Hispanic countries. It really depends who you talk to and who you end up sharing your Rosca with as to the story that you’ll be told. But here is everything that we think you need to know before embarking on your Rosca journey this weekend. Rosca de Reyes, which literally translates as The Kings' Ring is a donut-shaped, sweet bread, topped with dried fig strips, chopped cherries, lemon peel slices, jelly pieces and sugar. It looks somewhat like a colorful crown and it is almost always accompanied by a delicious cup of hot chocolate.
