When most of us are happy to sleep in at least until 7:00 am, Sandrita has already been awake and industrious for hours. Simply put, she loves to bake. Originally from Toronto and now living in Sayulita with her Mexican boyfriend, she found herself craving foods from home. Opening a bakery at the beginning of [...]

Pollos Asada (grilled chicken) is one of those meals that will forever remain one of my all time favourite food memories. From what I can tell, this item is usually served only on Domingo (Sunday), which is also known in Mexico as family day. Ten years ago, my dad and I took a bus trip [...]
I met the dinner goddess by chance, while drinking my morning coffee. I’d already seen her striking turquoise and red business card around town and loved the name. I was delighted to talk to Lila Shaw Lash, to learn about what made this Texan transplant tick in San Miguel de Allende. It didn’t take long [...]
Sorry….got a little side tracked there. Where was I? Oh yeah. Relaying some details about my recent Mexico trip….
Another activity I chose to do during my stay in San Miguel de Allende was to attend a cooking class. Sazon is a beautiful facility, offering all kinds of classes taught by a wide array [...]
The next stop on my Mexico trip was San Miguel de Allende. This scenic interior town can be reached from Puerto Vallarta by bus; about a 12 hour ride north east via Guadalahara (I opted for the the ‘overnight’ time slot, so as not to lose a precious vacation day to travel time). I’ve enjoyed [...]

You can find these tasty sandwiches everywhere in Mexico, made with fresh baked, lightly [...]
I was fortunate enough to be visiting the small beach town of Sayulita on November 20, the date when Mexico celebrates the anniversary of its Revolucion which first began back in 1910. It is rare that I share an experience here at gp that is not completely food focused, but this day is very important [...]
I stumbled upon this place my first morning in Puerto Vallarta. A small restaurant without signage, modestly yet cheerfully decorated, it somehow felt promising before I even stepped inside. Benjo’s is owned by Evangilina Madedro, but her daughter Malena is the solid presence here. She does all of the cooking, and always greets her customers [...]
I’m back, feeling rested, revitalized, inspired and sun-kissed. It has been almost 10 years since I’ve had the great pleasure of visiting Mexico. Though there have been many changes since 1998, it remains as warm, friendly and welcoming as ever. The Mexican people have always been good to me, and their kindness, good humour and [...]
