While most people are setting resolutions to diet more and eat less, foodies understand that quality counts and food is to be enjoyed. Here are 2019 resolutions perfect for foodies!
Travel For Food
Is there a chef you admire? Travel to dine at their restaurant. Is there an international cuisine you love? It will without a doubt taste better prepared fresh in its home country. Is there a rare fruit, vegetable, or regional cuisine you have always wanted to try? Make 2019 be the year you drive or fly to try it!
Master An Authentic Recipe
Whether its Italian red sauce made from scratch, authentic Mexican mole, or the perfect roast chicken—challenge yourself to master one new recipe this year. Start with an authentic version and once you have it down feel free to make it your own.
Invest In Your Kitchen
Most foodies love to cook so why not treat yourself to a few new kitchen items? For example, there are over 10 ways to brew coffee so you could invest in a French press, cold brew maker, or old school percolator. This might include upgrading your knives, pots and pans, and investing in food or dish-specific gadgets and appliances.
Expand Your Horizons
Set a goal to try one new recipe a month, try one new fruit or vegetable each time you go to the farmers market, or to try something you’ve never tried before—such as camel’s milk, wild boar meat, or an international dish. Also, keep your eye out for one-of-a-kind creations from local artisans and chefs—such as olive oil, vinegar, sauces, and spreads.
There are many reasons to support farm-to-table dining, including environmental consciousness and improved flavor and quality. As a foodie, you might not have a green thumb, but you might surprise yourself. At the very least, grow a few window box herbs such as garlic chives and basil. If you have the outdoor space give a few easy-grow items like green beans, tomatoes, carrots, or lettuce a try.
Here’s to another year of delicious and nutritious food. We hope this includes a trip to San Miguel de Allende to relax, dine, and immerse yourself in our local culture!
