“New World Cuisine: The Histories of Chocolate, Mate y Más” at the Museum of International Folk Art explores the dawn of world cuisine as we know — and consume — it, and how foods around the world developed from mixing the old and the new; how many of the tastiest dishes and desserts came to be associated with New Mexico.

New Mexico Restaurant Week is back, giving patrons a good look at restaurants where “Red or green?” is merely an option, not the extent of the menu. Now in its third year, the event has become a highly anticipated culinary event.
The fun starts in Santa Fe, where more than 50 restaurants will participate in the Sunday-to-Sunday culinary extravaganza, and several hotels will feature special Restaurant Week lodging packages. It’s the perfect week for out-of-town food lovers to visit The City Different, and for New Mexicans to plan a long weekend of culinary pleasure in their own backyard.
The foodie extravaganza continues in Taos (March 3 – 10), and Albuquerque (March 10 – 17). In addition to value-priced dinners and lunches, people can expand their epicurean horizons through daytime cooking demonstrations, classes, and wine & spirits tastings.
Sign up for events, get the list of participating restaurants (you won’t need tickets, but you WILL need to make your own reservations and they fill up fast!), and enter the New Mexico Restaurant Week sweepstakes here.
