Food and wine around the world

There’s no denying it.

We love trying all the different wine and food around the world – both when we travel and when we’re home!

Some of our fondest travel memories are those involving delicious food – sharing laughs around the dinner table on our family vacations in Los Cabos, exploring colorful markets (like the Tetouan Medina in Morocco) and sampling local dishes in foreign countries. (Turkish mezzes? Yum!)

Mexico

One of the many interesting facts about Mexican food is that the cuisine goes way beyond tacos. It can be very complex and creative. Think chiles en nogada – a delicious dish of meat-fruit-and-nut stuffed poblano peppers, bathed in a walnut cream sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds.

You must try these 17 delicious and interesting Mexican fruits – both when visiting Mexico and at home. (You can find many of these fruits in your local grocery store.)

Also check out our 15 Mexican margarita recipes – from the classic lime cocktail to a zesty cranberry ginger margarita (perfect for winter).
