    I see that your blog has been quiet since Sept, but I wanted to leave you a quick note about how much I enjoy your posts here and the articles you’ve had in Saveur and Gilt Taste. It’s really lovely work and I hope there will be much more.

    Also, “Under the Jaguar Sun” is one of my all-time favourite stories and, for what it’s worth, I bumped your article on my own blog: http://intentionallyentertaining.com/2012/03/16/cilantro-and-the-jaguar-sun/
