Recipe gift packages: Mexico edition.

So I just posted about Villa Cascadas and how much I love Mexico and I got to thinking that although it is beautiful and the people are exceptionally warm, what I really love about it is the food!
And by the way Hong Kong has amazing food: Chinese, Vietnamese, Italian, French…. everything except for Mexican–which I really don’t understand because the ingredients are non-perishable for the most part, although I don’t see a lot of avocados here.
And then I received this amazing package in the mail from my friend Tammy… a little kit to make the Chipotle Salsa we fell in love with while we were there!
What I love most is when food conjures about the memories of a certain place and time… the options for taking Tammy’s great idea for a hostess gift and running with it are endless. A s’more kit to remember a cozy ski weekend, a breakfast-in-bed package to thank someone for hosting you, a dumpling kit to remember a Chinese adventure, a spaghetti package to remember wine tasting in Italy, a six-pack of beer to remember that great time at Oktoberfest.
What a lovely way to brighten someone’s day… send your friend who you studied abroad with in Switzerland a fondue pot for example?! And if you can track down the recipe from your host Mom all the better. It will make her so happy–I promise!
