The Essential Vitamina T

In México, La Vitamina T (Vitamin T) is a tongue-in-cheek term we use to refer to tacos, tortas, tamales, tostadas, and other carb-loaded delicacies.

When I visit home, food is probably one of my favorite souvenirs. Crossing countries with everything I want to bring is always impractical and, at times, impossible. In my effort to feel close in the distance, I first brought pictures, then recipes. It finally occurred to me that food was perhaps the best way to make my new world feel like home.

This is how, in a bout of homesickness, La Vitamina T was born.
