Pods of annatto (at left). Shown perhaps with pods of castor bean? Or maybe another variation of the annotto pod.

~Merida Mercado & Yucatecan Cuisine~
Check out this video tour of foods and flavors of the Merida Market. Such a vibrant, lively place. I can’t wait to get my own personal tour of Merida’s Mercado with Chef Sterling next week and spend a day in his Los Dos Cooking School as one of his students (sans Martha, of course).
Oh, and if only the video could offer us the vibrant smells of the market and the cooking food in Chef’s kitchen!
For more beautiful shots of food and the colors of the Yucatan, as well as great traveller’s stories, check out Zora O’Neil’s blog Roving Gastronome … good stuff.
Am packing now…
Contemplating the path that I’ve walked, and the stretch of path that is ahead.
Pictured here walking the ancient limestone paths - or sacbes - at the ancient Maya site of Coba on the early morning of the Spring Equinox.
