Local Flavor Cooks Like A Chef Book

“Every day, we support the tenacity and creativity of our Northern New Mexico Kitchens and Chefs!”

So says Cullen Curtiss, Local Flavor editor. “Celebrate and honor the chefs you love now in person AND at home. A few evenings a week, invite a Northern New Mexico chef into your kitchen by making his or her dish or drink.”

Truly, a taste of life in New Mexico!
