Comments about Mexico Cooks!

  • 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

  • Praise from Susana Trilling, Seasons of My Heart
    "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.

  • Praise from La Casona Rosa, Morelia:
    "The article about Lila Downs is passionate, goose-bump producing writing by a true master of writing, the MEXICAN SPIRIT and life itself. The line 'OUR BEST SELVES' made me swoon. I love many Mexican women but top 3: Frida, Cristina and Lila. Viva la vida!"...Rosa de Chicago y Morelia

Claudio Poblete, www.culinariamexicana.com.mx

I tend not to leave a ton of comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here Mexico Cooks!: Food Fair in Uruapan, Michoacán: Una Muestra de Gastronomía. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it appear like some of the remarks appear like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
