Mesamérica Festival Adds Three New Events

Mesamérica Festival Adds Three New Events

In the Mesamérica Festival’s third year, the festival has added three new events to its roster. In addition to the Mesamérica festival held in Mexico City from May 20-22, Mesamérica will add the Mesa Maco pop-up restaurant, the Mesa Abierta 4-day event in San Miguel de Allende, and Mesa Week in August, when participating restaurants will offer special menus at accessible price points.

The Mesa Maco pop-up restaurant will be run by chefs from the Mexican Cooking Collective and runs from February 5-9 in Mexico City in Latin America’s largest celebration of contemporary art, Zona Maco. Participating chefs include Edgar Nuñez of Sud777, Daniel Olvadia of Paxia, and Sonia Arias of Jaso.

The Mesa Abierta event dedicated to the cuisine of Guanajuato will run from March 20-23 in San Miguel de Allende.

“Honoring the traditional dishes of this region and nurturing their progression around communal tables, we elevate the national identity of the state of Guanajuato in a 4-day event format,” a Mesamérica spokesperson said in a statement. “Producers, distributors, artisans, chefs, and journalists gather to share their products, dishes and words with an international audience interested in discovering yet another aspect of Mexico’s diverse offerings.”

The Mesamérica Festival will run from May 20-22 in Mexico city and this year is devoted to street food and urban expressions, which means chefs, architects, journalists, and other invited experts will discuss the question of, “What do we eat in large cities? How? And why?”

Mesa Week will occur from August 4-9, and participating chefs throughout Mexico will offer special menus at accessible price points so people can create their own eating tours throughout Mexico.

Lead the Sustainability Transition

Our current global system is not fit for purpose, and in many instances it&rsquos on the brink of collapse. Business has a vital role in ensuring we transform our relationship with both society and the environment. Global challenges must be tackled collectively with global solutions, that can be adapted to local resources and capabilities. Leading to a new sustainable future requires businesses to re-think parts, if not all, of their business. We need new definitive actions, new ways of collaborating and open innovation among all stakeholders.

Responsible Business 2021 is a global virtual event convening 5,000+ CEOs, Policymakers, Chief Sustainability Officers, NGOs and Investors who are driving change worldwide. Drawing on our global reach, voices from across the world we will share strategies and solutions on how business can innovate, invest, and collaborate to lead the sustainability transition. All discussions will be built around HOW we can take action now to accelerate the global transition. Join us in June as we help set the ambition and deliver a call for greater action.

Must try vegetarian recipes on the festival of Diwali

The festival of lights is here and it calls for a grand celebration indeed. With neighbourhood glimmering with lights and markets buzzing with people, Diwali brings along with itself a reason to celebrate and rejoice. This grand festival calls for a lavish dinner with your family which not only adds happy moments to your life but also lets you gorge guilt-free on several dishes and sweets. If you too are planning to host a family dinner, then here are some vegetarian dishes which will make your Diwali party a memorable affair.

02 /6 ​Malai Kofta

Soft kofta balls dipped in delicious creamy gravy, malai kofta is also known as meatballs for vegetarians. Just pair it with butter naan or jeera rice and you have a complete meal in itself. You can easily make delicious kofta balls by mixing potatoes and paneer together. Once the gravy is made, make sure you add crushed kasuri methi for an added aroma. In the end, garnish with either cream or homemade malai. Make sure you add the koftas to the gravy just before serving them, as this step will keep them crisp for long.

03 /6 ​Vegetable Jalfrezi

A spin-off of mix veg, vegetable jalfrezi is packed with the goodness of so many flavours and nutrients. You can include all your favourite veggies in it and give the dish your own customized touch. Made with sauteed vegetables, this dish has a little bit of gravy, just enough to not make it look dry. It is supposed to be extra spicy, which is why green chillies, hot peppers, Kashmiri lal mirch and garam masala are added to it. You can also add paneer cubes for an extra flavour.

04 /6 ​Tawa Chaap

Want to pair a unique dish with other recipes in your menu? Try restaurant style tawa chaap this time. Super easy to make, all you need to do is fry chaap pieces on a tawa, till they turn a bit golden brown. Next you need a blended gravy made with sauteed onions, tomatoes, bay leaf, ginger, garlic, elaichi, laung, kali mirch, garam masala and green chillies. Stir a bit on the tawa itself, till the chaap pieces absorb the gravy. Once done, savour your flavourful tawa chaap with butter naan or rumali roti.

05 /6 ​Achari Paneer

Bored of the usual kadhai paneer, shahi paneer, paneer butter masala? Try this tempting paneer dish which will leave you and your family craving for more. This spicy and flavourful paneer can be paired with either rice or roti. A number of kitchen spices like cumin seeds, fennel seeds, hing, kalonji, mustard seeds, coriander seeds are used in it, which gives the dish an &lsquoachari&rsquo taste. Curd is also added to the gravy to give it the right texture and richness. If you prefer it more tangy, garnish with lemon juice.

06 /6 ​Panchmel Dal

Want a yummy dal for your Diwali dinner but don&rsquot want to go for moong dal? This panchmel dal is an ideal fit for you. Made by combining different types of pulses, this dal brings several types of flavours in a bowl together for you. You can also add a spicy tadka to it in order to make the dal more delicious.


When the water's boiling again, Smith says to toss in your crawfish. Earlier in the season, "the shell is tender," meaning they should spend less time boiling. Later in the season, they'll require a bit more time. Pull them from the water after about two minutes and get your ice chest ready. "I take an ice chest, sprinkle seafood boil on the bottom, put down a layer of crawfish," Smith says. He continues alternating layers until the ice chest is full, closes it, shakes it up and lets the shellfish steam for another 15 minutes.

After that, pour them out on newspaper-laden tables, start munching and enjoy what Fruge calls "an event." And if you end up with leftovers, don't fret. "The more the merrier," Fruge says. "You can never have too much. If you have extra crawfish, which is unheard of, there are so many things you can do with it."


Los Angeles Beer Week moves to June, adds new venue

Heading into its seventh iteration, the weeklong celebration of craft brewing culture in Los Angeles is moving from September to June, and the signature kickoff festival hosted by the L.A. Brewers Guild will move from Chinatown to Exposition Park.

It’s been a tumultuous few years for L.A. Beer Week in 2014 the Los Angeles Brewers Guild took over organizational responsibilities for the grassroots movement focused on craft beer education. The Guild reworked the signature beer festival, moving it from the last day of beer week to the first and from Union Station to Chinatown’s central plaza, and even more changes are in store for 2015

Beer Week will now run from June 20 through June 28, with the expanded Exposition Park festival bringing even more local and guest breweries together to get things started on June 20. Some presale tickets to the kickoff will go on sale on April 3, and the general ticket sales begin on May 1. See www.labeerweek.com for more details on tickets.

The announcement comes after the successful, but stressful, 2014 edition of L.A. Beer Week. The L.A. Brewers Guild — largely responsible for organizing and coordinating the nine days of events — says that scheduling beer week three months earlier will mean many of the participating craft breweries and associated businesses can now dedicate more time and energy to the events.

Beer Week’s previous September schedule fell toward the end of the busy summer events season, and just before major industry conference The Great American Beer Festival. This tight scheduling made it difficult for many local breweries and businesses to dedicate resources to the Beer Week celebrations, says L.A. Beer Week committee Chairman Thomas Kelley of El Segundo Brewing Co.

“It is always so darn hot in September,” says Smog City Brewery founder Laurie Porter, who also sits on the L.A. Beer Week Committee. “At least we’ll have some June gloom now.”

Any Beer Week festival attendees who remember the sweltering afternoon on the Union Station patios in 2012, or the oppressive stuffiness of the (admittedly awesome) Ticketing Hall in 2013 should welcome the shift to balmy mid-June and breezy Exposition Park.
