A little taste of Mexico in Washington DC

With this year's Day of the Dead (a three day festival to honor family members who have died) quickly approaching, DCitizens will have some great opportunities to sample some true Mexican food.

One of Mexico's best - Chef Carmen “Titita” Ramírez of El Bajío restaurant in Mexico City has been brought to DC by uber-chef Jose Andres and has designed a menu at Oyamel that'll run from October 29 through November 3rd.

The most exciting aspect of Ramírez's visit is the free cooking class she'll be putting on at the Mexican Cultural Institute on Wednesday, October 31st at 10:00am.

Later on that evening (from 5-7pm), there will be a free tequila tasting at Oyamel, which promises to be a lot of fun.

This is Chef Ramírez's first visit to DC - I'm sure afterwards there will be quite a demand for her to make a return trip.
