For advice on the perfect, Mexican-inspired recipes, we tapped Eduardo Garcia, the master chef and founder of Montana Mex. Already fans of his gourmet cooking salts, we asked the chef to create six untraditional dishes for the perfect Cinco de Mayo bash.
Since May 5 commemorates the unlikely victory where Mexican forces defeated French military at the Battle of Puebla, it makes sense to create a menu that highlights dishes and seasonings from both countries. From spicy roasted peanuts to berry crepes, the recipes ahead will keep things low key but still delicious. And, for a spread that will set your party apart, think outside the kitchen for inspiring service ware. A couple terra cotta roof tiles can really boost the visual appeal of a delicious spread. Get ready to raise that margarita glass!
