Little Handkerchiefs or “Fazzoletti”

made of New Mexico Red Chile Pasta on today’s menu.

Red chile Fazzoletti

As some of you may know, I grew up in New Mexico.

The bright blue skies and vast mesa of the high desert will always feel like home to me.  -But the thing that leaves the most memorable impression on most people who spend time there is


New Mexican food is a hybrid combination influenced by the earliest Spanish settlers (who were searching for the cities of gold) as well as the indigenous  peoples of the region, and a very specific variety of chile that is native to the land.

It is not your typical “Mexican” food (though similar), and It is certainly not “TEX-MEX”  It is it’s own unique thing, and it is my preferred comfort food.

If you would like to experience an authentic New Mexican food event,

I’ll be preparing all my favorites on June 28th, in collaboration with the One Night Only Project and Barrique Imports!
