Last night there was a different kind of dinner party in the East Village. James Casey, creator of Swallow Magazine, had a few friends over to experience the making of, the process, the cooking and the tasting of his next issue. The next issue which is themed Mexico City will be full of great traditional Mexican dishes, all of which he cooked himself that day. It was just great to see the ingredients through their preparation and cooking until the moment where it gets photographed and then eaten. At one point it got so spicy in there that we all started coughing uncontrollably while the jalepenos cooked away on the stove. I can hardly wait to see the issue once it comes out. ¡Viva México!
