Los Dos

On the last day of our trip to the Yucatan, my group was fortunate enough to receive audience with the unbelievably knowledgeable (and gracious!) David Sterling. We learned so much in an hour long talk by David, who is an engaging and witty teacher. As a student of the ice age, I was fascinated to learn that many indigenous species are unique to the land because millions of years ago, when sea levels were much higher than they are now, Yucatan was an island.

Wood smoke and ash meet brightness and heat in the cuisine of the Yucatan, and not only did David give us the history, he made it come alive in his kitchen serving up the best food we had eaten the entire trip. We were spoiled with delicacies and did not want to leave (also contributing to our group’s reluctance to go is that Los Dos is BEAUTIFUL and the strongest AC I had felt in Mexico.)

Thank you David for being an incredible host to our group of chefs and managers and sharing your years of accumulated research and deliciousness!
