Comments about Mexico Cooks!

  • Praise for Mexico Cooks!
    Cristina Potters is the ultimate tour guide. She knows Mexico and its traditions, food and artesanías like no other. And she makes it so much fun. Take a trip with her. You will LOVE it! --Cathy Fetka, Jalisco, Mexico
  • Praise for Mexico Cooks!
    We will never forget the tour of Michoacan you took us on. It was, and still is one of our most cherished memories of our life's travels to over 43 countries so far. Unbelievable! Amazing! Professionalism beyond compare, oh and your encyclopedic knowledge of Mexican history and culture is truly amazing. Love, Love, Love your tours! --Larry Orinovsky, Tucson, Arizona
  • Praise for Mexico Cooks!
    Cristina Potters is for me the single most important person for inspiring love for and appreciation of México. Her food blog is justly one of the most famous and revered in the world but her influence extends way beyond that. She has spent decades tirelessly educating other expats and her ability to move seamlessly between cultures and to help any visitor to or resident of México appreciate and respect their good fortune is remarkable. And when it comes to speaking truth to power or defending the powerless you’ll never find a fiercer friend. All of which is to say if you enjoyed this post please spend hours reading her writing. She is a treasure. --Kevin Knox, Tucson, Arizona

    "It was inspiring to be around all your knowledge and network of wonderful people that you got together to show us the magic of Michoacán! I can see why you love it so much. Not only is it physically beautiful but the spirit of the people is engaging and contagious. We left feeling so well received and in awe of the talent of Michoacanos, and we felt that we learned so much! ! Everyone at the school was impressed by the dulces [candies] and the artesanías [arts and crafts] we brought back. If it hadn't been for you, we never could have seen and done so much...You are incredible!"...Susana Trilling, Seasons of My Heart, Oaxaca.

Felicitaciones! I love your blog, well done for making it to number 1!

I should pass on my latest variation of tortilla espanola. It hardly matches up with the traditional recipe any more -- other than the presence of eggs, onion, and potatoes. But there is now much more. I may post something.
