Culinary Tour of Mexico 2012-2013
You’re invited! Please join UTSA Libraries, UTSA Rec Center and the Hispanic Student Association in 2012 and 2013 for our second culinary tour of Mexico, as we travel to Puebla, Jalisco, Veracruz, Colima, Guanajuato, and Oaxaca. This year we’ll be traveling through time, too, as we explore over 100 years of Mexican cookbooks. We begin in 1918 and end with Mexico’s Bicentennial in 2010.
