Chiles en nogada at Azul Condesa

Chile en nogada at Azul Condesa

I’m still here. I know I’ve been MIA, but I still think about this blog and my readers every day. Every time I eat something delicious (down here in Mexico that happens every day) I say to myself: “I should blog about this”. I’ve been doing some thinking and I believe this blog needs to take a different direction. I’ve been blogging for more than 4 years and I’ve really enjoyed every moment of it.

However, I think it’s time to take it a step further. I don’t want to lose the personal space this blog represents for my cooking and food adventures, but I want it to be more than that. During the following weeks and months I’ll be making some changes to the blog and I’d love your feedback on that. However, I don’t want to lose the personal touch that this blog allows me to have with my readers. Soon I’ll talk more about this.

For now I’ll leave you with a video of my last visit to Azul Condesa. September is our biggest month in Mexico because we celebrate our Independence from Spain. And what a better way to celebrate than with food. Chiles en nogada is a very typical dish this time of the year. Even though it’s different from my mom’s chiles en nogada, I really enjoyed them. The most interesting thing about this dish at Azul is that they make a sweet and a savory nogada sauce. I ordered the mixed plate. It was a very interesting mix.
