Boy, did I need to get out of town. I flew into Mexico last week for a quick hello to some old pals and to reacquaint myself with the beautiful state of Michoacan and the town of Morelia in particular.
I've been able to see some great pottery and eat some very good food. There are many great dishes from this area and I never understand why they never seem to get exported to the US.
Cristina Potters was kind enough to introduce me the lovely chef Lucero who runs her Lu restaurant right in the center of town. She's taken some great traditional food and tuurned it on its head, creating a menu that's clever, repsectful and whimsical. And she enjoys a good book it would seem!
And you can read Cristina's blog entry about Lu here.
