This guide is for those who are ready to hit the road and want to be informed about the places they are visiting. It's for foodies, travelers, adventurers, and eaters who want to go beyond the online reviews to explore the culture and people of New Mexico through its cuisine. New Mexico Food Trails takes readers and road trippers on a tour of the state with their taste buds, through towns large and small, where cooks and chefs are putting their own spin on New Mexico's most famous ingredients and dishes. Take a delicious journey to find and experience some of the best dishes, drinks, flavors, textures, and terroir in the Land of Enchantment.
