Mexico Cooks! with Cristina Potters
Cristina Potters, a Chicago native, arrived in Mexico in 1981. After several years as a social worker in the Tijuana city jail, she lived in Mexico City, then in a tiny village in Michoacán, and subsequently resided for many years in the state of Jalisco, including in Guadalajara. Long a permanent fixture in Morelia, Michoacán, she holds dual Mexican and United States citizenship.
Cristina learned the cuisines of the central highlands of Mexico from the source: the mayoras (extraordinary older home cooks) who have been her friends for over 40 years. She has mastered the intricacies of many traditional Mexican recipes, flavors, and of course, the delights of the pre-Hispanic corn and chile kitchen.
Mexico Cooks!, Cristina’s website about all things Mexico, has been named the number one food blog in the world by the London Times. Praised and quoted in newspapers as diverse as the New York Times, Guadalajara’s El Mural, the South China Morning Post, and the Chicago Tribune, Mexico Cooks! is the internet’s most authoritative voice about the cuisines and cultures of central Mexico. The first person to write online in English about Mexico’s cuisines, she is cited as the go-to expert on Mexico in Lonely Planet Mexico and is quoted in Time Out Mexico City. Cristina and Mexico Cooks! currently boast between six and seven million readers throughout the world.
