We are busy at work on a magical dinner collaboration between Tlayudona and Caldo de Piedra that will take place next month at Los Lirios Bed and Breakfast, nestled into our cobblestoned Jalatlaco neighborhood.
Chef Victor Gachupín will be preparing delicious caldo de piedra, or “stone soup”, which will be served with typical appetizers and include a courtesy mezcalito. As you eat, you´ll be the first audience in Mexico privy to the award-winning documentary about Victor´s family´s culinary art, called “The Path to Stone Soup”.
Just when you thought it couldn´t get any better….
We´ll also have a vegan option of this regional delicacy on hand, so that everyone´s invited!
Caldo de piedra is a traditional freshwater seafood soup served in a hollowed-out gourd known as a jicara, featuring ingredients such as red snapper, shrimp, cilantro, chilies, tomatoes and epazote, an herb native to Mexico. It is cooked using white-hot river stones, which have been slowly heated over an open fire and added into the gourds. The soup is served bubbling and steaming – a delicious offering with more than 2,000 years of history. This unique pop-up event celebrates culture, cuisine and history in a lovely, convenient location.
