RECIPES FROM MEXICO

In honor of this month’s Country Focus, the  Riviera Maya, we share some of the many, many fabulous food recipes of Mexico!

PORK CHILE VERDE


Ingredients:

4 lbs. boneless pork shoulder or Boston roast, trimmed and cut into 2-inch cubes
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
3 yellow onions
2 green bell peppers, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 Anaheim or Poblano chiles, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 jalapenos, seeds removed, and finely chopped
4 large garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1 pound tomatillos, peeled and chopped or a jar of roasted tomatillo salsa
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 bunch of cilantro, cleaned and chopped
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups of beer or white wine
Instructions:

Trim off any excess fat from the pork and cut into 2 inch squares. Season the pork meat generously with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven, over a high heat, sear the pork in the olive oil until golden brown. Lift pork out of pan and place in large bowl. Sauté onions and peppers in the same skillet and sweat over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until limp, about 5 minutes.

Add all of the chilies and cook an additional 3 or 4 minutes, then add the garlic and cook 1or 2 minutes more. Add the following to the sautéed vegetables: the  meat, the tomatillos, dried herbs and cilantro.

Cover with the stock and beer then bring up to a boil and reduce to a slight simmer. Cook for 2 to 3 hours uncovered or until the pork is 'melt in your mouth' tender. Adjust the seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with white rice and black beans. Serves 4

GUACAMOLE

Ingredients:
2 ripe avocados
6 tomatillos (corn husk tomatoes)
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion
2 tablespoons of cilantro
Serrano chile as desired
Salt     
Instructions:

Toast the chilies and tomatillos. Grind up the garlic in a molcajete with the salt and chilies.  Once well ground, add the tomatillos, avocados and grind a little more. To garnish the guacamole, put sliced onion and chopped cilantro on top. Serve immediately.

Note: a molcajete is a rough-surfaced mortar - usually made of volcanic rock - for grinding up spices and vegetables.

EMPANADAS

Ingredients:

2 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
milk (as needed)
2 tbsp solid vegetable shortening
2 cups vegetable oil
Instructions:

To prepare delicious empanadas, combine flour, salt and baking powder and sift together thoroughly. Using two dinner knives, cut shortening into flour mixture until mixed. As you go along, add enough milk (water may be substituted) to slightly moisten dough. Dough should be easy to handle, but not sticky. (In the event that it becomes sticky, add a bit more flour).

Let stand for about ten minutes. On a lightly floured wooden cutting board, roll dough until thin. Using a jar lid/top, cut dough into eight circles, about four inches in diameter.

Place one heaping teaspoon of filling in middle of each circle. Fold dough over in half, then pinch edges together in a semicircle to hold in filling. Heat oil in deep frying pan until a drop of water sizzles when it lands in the oil. Fry empanadas in oil until golden brown-about three minutes per side. Drain empanadas on paper towels.

MEXICAN FLAN

Ingredients:
3 Eggs
1 can of La Lechera Condensed Milk
1 cup of Regular Milk
1/2 cup of Sugar
1 Tsp of 100% Pure Vanilla
Instructions:

Heat oven to 350 F. In a non-stick flan mold, add  sugar, spreading it evenly, leaving it to cook on the stove until it reaches a dark color. Once this happens, remove the mold from the stove and make sure that it is evenly spread so that you can leave it to cool off.

Meanwhile, mix in a blender the 3 eggs, the La Lechera Condensed Milk, the regular milk and the teaspoon of vanilla (extra).  After it is well mixed, place it in the flan mold where the cold caramel had rested. To cook, fill baking pan with 1/2 inch of warm water, and cover with a tent of aluminum foil. Bake until custards are just set, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove pan from oven, and remove custards from pan.

Serve when cooled, or cover flans with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to unmold. To unmold, run a knife carefully around the edge of each custard. Invert onto a plate, and drizzle 1 teaspoon of coffee liqueur, if using, over each flan.

ARTISTS OF THE CARIBBEAN

This month we feature the artists of Cuba as we continue with our introduction to the wonderful, and mostly unknown, artists of the Caribbean region.

1. Juan Minero

Juan Minero is a (self-described) diminutive 34-year old painter from Pinar del Rio.  Here is what he had to say about himself: "One would think he would paint with rancor, but, no....his work is hysterical."

2. Pablo Morpa

Pablo Morpa was born in Habana in 1961.  He attended the School of Design in Habana, and now works as a painter and interior decorator.  He was inspired to paint as a child, and has painted ever since.  When asked why he enjoys painting cats so much, he replies that he likes cats, because they make him feel happy;  and his paintings of them make other people feel happy.

3. Armando Tejuca

Armando Tejuca Corominas was born on September 29 1968 in Habana, Cuba.  He is a graduate in Civil Engineering (ISPAJE 1991) and in "Artes Plasticas" from the San Alejandro Academy (1995).  He is a member of: La Asociacion Hermanos Saiz (since 1991), Cens Artistes Plastics (ACEA), Barcelona, Spain.  Founder-Member of Grupo de creacion Humoristica 30 de Febrero (since 1991).
He has participated in several humoristic exhibitions.
4. Andres Tosco
Andres Tosco was born on December 24 1959 in Habana, Cuba.  He trained as a computer technician in Russia, before turning to painting in 1994.  He is self-taught, and, after initially painting on wood, now paints only on canvas.  Tosco is married, with two children who inspire some of his paintings.  He is very concerned with social issues, something which, as he freely admits, is not reflected in his works.

5. Armando Torres Hernandez

Armando Torres was born in the province of Santa Clara in 1961.  He is a self-taught painter, whose works have been variously described as surrealist, primitive, or naive.  His works depict scenes from Cuban life, sometimes in fantastic settings, which reveal the influence of Afro-Cuban mythology.

6. Mendez (Francisco Mendez Alonso)

Francisco Mendez Alonso was born October 15, 1954 in the city of Habana.  Following primary and secondary schools, he attended the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of Habana, from which he graduated in 1980.  Having always felt an affinity for the arts, particularly painting, he enrolled in art classes, where he was taught basic painting techniques. Since 1980, he combines his work as a civil engineer with his second career...being an artist.  Painting, he says, satisfies and relaxes him, because painting, to him, is a labor of love and dedication.

7. Naguna (Nelson Laguna Sanchez)

Naguna was born February 20 1956.  He is a graduate of the Academia Provincial de Artes Plasticas "San Alejandro."  He has exhibited several collective exhibitions and his works can be found in numerous private collections throughout the world.

8. Roca (Daniel Roca Blanco)

Roca was born in La Habana on the 27th of June 1967.  In 1983, he commenced his studies in industrial design in the Instituto de Diseno Industrial in Habana, from which he graduated in 1987.  He started his artistic career by carving, and did not begin to paint until 1996.  His works can be found in numerous private collections in the USA, Europe and South America.

9. Ronald (Ronaldo de Jesus Espinosa Nieto)

Ronaldo was born in the city of Habana in 1961.  He graduated from University of Habana in 1991, and is a member of the Fondo Cubano de Bienes  Culturales.  He has had several exhibitions in his native Cuba (1998, in the Casa de la Trova Benny More; 2000, in the Galeria de Arte San Miguel del Padron; 2001, in the Gran Teatro de la Habana), as well as in Mexico (1994, in Cancun "Lo Azul de Cuba").  Several of his works were shown in the  Festival de las Naciones in 1999 in Spain.  His works can also be found in private collections in Jamaica, Spain, France, Italy, the United States, and other countries.

10. Suarez (Julio Andres Suarez Machin)

Suarez was born in Pinar del Rio in 1946.  He graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Arte in 1968.  He initially worked in the book and publishing business, and has been a member of the Union de Periodistas de Cuba (UPEC) since 1970.  He was the artistic director of the "Revista Verde Olivo" from 1978 until 1990.  In 1981, with four other artists, he founded the group Tiempo Libre.  He joined the Union de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba (UNEAC) in 1995, and started painting.  In 1999, he became a member of the Proyecto Horizontal.  He has participated in numerous exhibitions in Cuba.

11. Humberto de Jesus Vinas Garcia

Humberto de Jesus Vinas Garcia was born in Habana, Cuba, on June 5, 1963.  He is a self-taught painter and auto-didact, who, in 1985, completed his studies as an "orfebre", or art smith.  He subsequently worked as an art smith in the Taller Katey.  In 1987, he designed the catalogue and program for the exhibition "Primer Encuentro de la Cultura Arabe en Cuba", which was held at the Galeria Emir Abdel Kader, in Habana.

In 1988, he completed a course in photography at the Union de Escritores y Periodistas de Cuba.  From 1989 to 1990, he completed a course in ceramics at the Taller de Ceramica del Cerro.  In 1994, he completed a course in theatre production, dance, and music spectaculars, and was recognized in this field by the Ministry of Culture, and the Teatro Nacional de Cuba.

In 1995, he worked as a producer in theatre, with the Teatro Nacional de Cuba, and he became an "independent artist" with the Fondo de Bienes Culturales.  In 1999, he created a series of oil on canvas paintings for the Premacion del Evento Guitatrova, held by the cultural authority of the municipality Playa, in the city of Habana.

12. Yasmina

Born in Trinidad, Province of Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, on July 21 1971. Yasmina studied at the Oscar Fernandez Morera Art School from 1984 to 1986.  From 1986 to 1990 she attended the San Alejandro Art School in the city of Habana.  She has had many exhibitions in her native Cuba, as well as exhibiting in London.  Her paintings form part of many private collections around the world.
