On the first Monday of each month in 2015,  La Cocina Histórica will feature recipes from Josefina Velázquez de León’s month-by-month cookbook series: Los 365 Menus del Año. 


The May cookbook in this series includes recipes for a variety of in-season produce, such as green beans, melons, and pitaya, but perhaps its most striking feature is the elaborate menu for Mother’s Day. Considering the work involved in preparing all nine of the suggested dishes, one can only wistfully hope that mothers are not the ones doing the cooking that day!

  • Cocktail de Melon / melon cocktail
  • Entremes Surtido / sundry appetizers (canned asparagus, canned pimientos, hard boiled eggs, onions in vinegar) with a vinegar-based sauce
