Tesoro Escondido Thank You - Thank you so much to the people who sent the kind note and Nancy's phone number. I just spoke with Nancy via Skype. I am so happy to hear that she is still doing her wonderful work. We had lost her phone number due to two moves and our email communications did not reach her correctly. We are greatly appreciative of the service Nancy provides and we want all of you to know that we think she is contributing greatly to the community and that we had and have every faith in her. If some of you thought differently, please know that is not the case nor did we mean to imply that. Nancy is honest, fair and diligent and we would leave things with her always. I miss shopping at Tesoro. We continue to have our goods on consignment there. We would encourage all of you to do the same and to frequent her business which is full of great treasures of all kinds. In these challenging times, what better thing to support than a business that recycles the things we no longer use? Please, bless her and her business with your contributions and go and see what you might be able to use or bless someone else with.

Cultural Purpose Dinners at Cafe Todos Santos - We are happy to present a new program of food and entertainment at Cafe Todos Santos. It is a full calendar of dinners with a cultural purpose: the study and enjoyment of dishes with a different history, philosophy and cooked in different styles. The purpose is a journey through different worlds and different ways to prepare and cook, so that a dinner becomes not only fulfilling for the stomach, but also a pleasure for the eye, the nose and the taste buds. The program will last the whole winter season to March 2011. It will take place four nights a week and so divided:

Tuesdays: Meat Dishes
Wednesdays: Pasta
Thursdays: Vegetarian
Fridays: Seafood.
Each night will introduce dishes cooked in many different ways, using local products and transforming simple staple in culinary treasures. Exclusive does not mean expensive; the dinner includes a single dish, composed of two, three or more variations. A vegetarian night, for instance, could be dedicated to the discovery of different chilies, prepared and cooked in different styles. A "meat" night could highlight the use of skewer, to roast pigs, chicken, and ducks. A "fish" night could be dedicated to frying styles and a "pasta" night could include several types of pasta, mirroring the different character of Italian regions.

If the Mediterranean is considered the cradle of civilization, its cuisine, the real one, will be our guide. So, in the course of the nights, we could organize wine or olive oil tasting. Dinner will start at 18:00 to 20:30 and reservation is recommended, only 20 seats available. The cost will be of 150 Mex$, not including beverages, service and taxes. For reservations, contact Cafe Todos Santos - Angelo Dal Bon, angelodalbon [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 6121450274, Baja California Sur
