Braised Short Ribs with Oaxacan Chile Peppers and Herbs and Roast Potatoes. it is definitely not a classic Oaxacan dish but it was a great way to isolate the difference the Oaxacan ingredients made.

So today was dedicated to what was always slated to be one of the highlights of the trip: a Mole Negro lesson from one of Teotitlan’ top Cocinera Tradicionales: Carina Santiago. I got exactly what I came for: a much clearer idea of what, exactly, it means to respect and honor ingredients in the context of Mole.

Tostada of Smoked Eggplant, Mushrooms and Fresh Herbs. This dish was inspired by one I loved at a restaurant dinner she put on in conjunction with @24.suns. Their collaboration was so seamless that I could not tell you who came up with the dish in question (https://www.instagram.com/p/CaR_eVclB0I/). I was in love with those flavors and wanted to look for ways to play with them in a Mexican idiom.
