Travel to Colima, Mexico with Your Palate on Jan 23
Jan 17, 2012
By Stephanie Sanchez, Communications Specialist, UTSA Libraries
In a day, travel to Colima in the southwestern coast of Mexico and back.
But this trip might be a little different.
It doesn't require making flight or hotel reservations, waiting in long lines or presenting a passport. The only requirement is your palate.
The next stop on the Culinary Tour of Mexico, a cooking demonstration series, will be from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 23 at the Rec Center's Demo Kitchen. This free event is open to students, faculty and staff, and Recreation Center membership is not required.
The dish featured on this tour to Colima is camarones a la diabla – a savory and spicy dish – with a side of guacamole.
Since August, the UTSA Libraries in collaboration with UTSA's Recreation Center and La Despedida, a student organization, have held the cooking session series to highlight the University's world-class Mexican Cookbook Collection. Each interactive demonstration focuses on a different state in Mexico.
