The Mexican food most people think of is really tex-mex inventions to feed the hungry around the Texas-Mexico boarders. The reality of Mexican cuisine is a fascinating, diverse and evolving culinary excitement and 2015 being the Year of Mexico in the UK means there will be a lot of educating the public on just what Mexican cuisine means.
I was invited to spend the day at The Savoy in London, attending a series of Masterclasses on Mexican food and drink.
Restaurante Manzanilla is in Ensenada on the Baja Peninsula and whose menu is full of fresh and innovative sea foods. I was able to interview Benito during a break and will be posting about this later as well!
My favourite moment was learning how to drink tequila - who knew it was such a nice drink with interesting background flavours and tastes!!
2015 is the Year of mexico in the UK - keep your eyes open for loads of fun and education going on in London over the coming months.
