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. 


Next week on September 16th, Mexico will celebrate its Independence Day, commemorating Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla’s Grito de Dolores, which marked the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence.

The September volume of Los 365 Menus del Año offers special recipes “propios para servirse en las fiestas patrias.” These include Enchiladas con Chorizo (chorizo enchiladas), Ensalada de Nopales (cactus pad salad), Tostaditas de Manitas de Cerdo (small tostadas with pigs’ feet), Chiles Rellenos (stuffed chiles), Bandera Mexicana – Platillo de Frijoles (Mexican flag – a bean dish), Copas Bandera Mexicana de Jaletinas de Uva, de Coco y de Granada (Mexican flag gelatin cups with grapes, coconut, and pomegranate), Pastel de la Trajinera ([carriage?] cake), and Pastel de Manzana “Con Los Colores de la Bandera Nacional”(apple cake with the colors of the Mexican flag).
