The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

Oaxaca Sabe - Oaxaca knows..... food!... Day 4 - Luvina

Continuing to eat our way through Oaxaca.... yesterday, it was Luvina for someone's birthday meal.
What a week!  Once again, the food was sublime and the presentation and service impeccable.  Chef Carlos García is from Guadalajara and presented a wonderful menu. The first course was arroz cremoso con legumbres, calamares y mollejas asadas (creamy rice with vegetables, with grilled little crunchy squid and gizzards) and it was about as good a dish as I have ever had.  So good it makes my mouth water just to think of it.
Next we had a choice between conejo chimeco con verduras rostizadas con manteca de pato (rabbit with roasted vegetables in duck fat).  I got the wabbit. 
I am ready for my closeup....
Looks pretty good doesn't it?  It was.
The other main course choice was robálo al pastor con chichilo negro con espuma de cilantro (sea bass, chichilo mole with an amazing cilantro foam).  I had a taste.... mmmmmmm.
Dessert was a very light bread-like thing with a candle.  I liked it.
What a blast this week is turning out to be!  On to the next.....  Be sure to check out Casa Colibri's post... she has more photos ;-)
