I am back to New York in May after spending two and a half months working on a food related art project in Veracruz. I am grateful to learn from the beautiful "women of smoke" (mujeres de humo), the Totonaca women who proclaim that their perfume is that of smoke, their skin absorbing the smells of the wood fire burning oven. Each morning they kneel down asking for permission to begin their fire in order to nuture their people. They have much respect for the process and all the ingredients needed to create each dish.
For those who like to plan ahead, reserve your seats today for May Gathering. The meal will be inspired by my time spent in Mexico with the Totonaca women. For updates on upcoming events check our site. See you in May when the crisp Spring air lightens our moods and the farmers market are packed with more fruits and veggies.
