300 Dishes of Moctezuma

Platos de MoctezumaDid you know that the Aztec emperor Moctezuma feasted on 300 dishes daily? It sounds incredible, but it is true. So with the help of an interdisciplinary team of designers, chefs, historians and anthropologists, chef Rodrigo Llanes will recreate the 300 dishes of Moctezuma  in conjunction with the Center for Research in Industrial Design at the Faculty of Architecture of the UNAM CIDI.

They have a type of kickstarter campaign going to fund the project. If you enjoy anything Latino, food, or are just curious, please consider joining us in donating to this fine project. We know RodRodrigo Llanes and his family personally. They are wonderful people and he is an exceptional chef.

The site is in Spanish, but the English toggle is in the top right corner.

After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI. We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
