When I knew I was going to London I emailed just a couple of food bloggers to say that, if they had the time, I'd love to meet them. I thought we'd gather at a Pub or maybe a quiet meal out. I never would have suspected a food bloggers gathering to rival anything I had ever seen or been part of.
An all day affair of "Cocina Mexicana." The second-to-last to arrive, the cooking and prepping was already in full swing!

Now I have the photos. Please don't judge me on them-- they are indeed snapshots. Of the most basic kind. I tried to get the whole kitchen, some of the prep, and what the set tables looked like. We made overwhelming amounts of food and all sat down when famished. I could eat that meal four more times over and experience different tastes, we made so many dishes!
attempted to dawdle or relax. Bravo Xochitl and Iliana for telling us home culinary stories and adding doses of passion and dashes of love to every bowl, dish, pot and squeeze of lime. Bravo to all of us humble food bloggers-- many of whom had never
anywhere near Mexico, Mexican food, or Mexican ingredients!
We came, we prepped, we smelled, we tasted, we laughed, we taught, we learned, we savored, we sauteed, we shaped, we stirred, we braised, we roasted, we seasoned, we peeled, we juiced, we chopped, diced, and sliced, we drank, we were warmed and welcomed, introduced and invited back.
