About the Founders
I created the Mexican Food Journal to share my love for Mexican Food. I have been a resident of Mexico for 20 years over which I have grown to love Mexican cuisine. I am the former owner of restaurant in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I am an excellent cook and teacher. The Journal combines two of my passions, cooking and teaching. Prior to opening coffee shops and restaurants I was a university language professor.
It makes me laugh now but I didn’t always love Mexican food. For the first half of my life I wouldn’t eat Mexican food. Too hot! Any dish with even a hint of chile was too hot for me. Not any more! Now I can’t get enough of Mexican food. The intensity of the flavors and the diversity of the dishes keep me wanting to experience more.
Andrés Carnalla – Photographer
Andrés is a professional photographer from Cuernavaca, Mexico who also has a great love for Mexican cuisine. He generously shares family recipes that come from his mother and grandmother.
In addition to shooting photos for the Journal, he is currently documenting theater life in Mexico for an upcoming book and he used to own a Mexican cafe in San Francisco, Ca.
Mexican Cuisine Listed by UNESCO
I want you to know that there is much more to Mexican food than just chiles and hot sauce. Did you know that Mexican Cuisine is listed by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage and that the only other country to receive this recognition is France? Mexican cuisine is sophisticated with centuries of history and tradition.
Our Latest Project – The Mexican Travel Journal
As a companion to the Mexican Food Journal we have created the Mexican Travel Journal to share the people, stories and places of Mexico.
Right now, it is a work in progress but over time it will be become a great resource for anyone who is interested in learning about Mexico past the well known resort towns.
