The gastronomic festival has celebrated three consecutively successful years, and this year is no different! We at the Instituto Cultural Oaxaca were thrilled to join in on this year’s festivities, and Alejandro’s efforts to promote and foster Oaxaca’s culinary traditions. Yesterday afternoon we hosting for the first time ever an indescribably delicious event, “Comida Oaxacalifornia.”

The “El Sabor de Saber” festival takes place every September in Oaxaca, and is hosted by various venues and restaurants across the city. It is an extraodinary opportunity to sample the culinary delights of Mexico with a touch of Oaxacan flair. If you are not able to make it to the events, you may still sample the delicious Oaxacan fare by visiting the participating chefs at their local Oaxacan restaurants which include Pitonia, Casa Oaxaca, Catedral, Origen, Asador Vasco, among many others!

  1. I would like to know more about Yolanda Sosa Gutierrez’s wool rugs as shown in the article ‘Small Loans, Big Smiles in Oaxaco” in Sunday’s (10/13/2013) Seattle Times. Her picture showed an En Via coordinator, Kim Groves, if that helps make a connection. Does she sell them in the States? Thank you!

  2. It’s still a little vague but we can try to fill in the holes.
    One of the joys of a good multiplayer game is how classes support each other, and Dystopia has that in spades.
    If they’re far away, then they’ll probably start attacking
    every other ant and cause a big fight.
