SAN ANTONIO, TX –– How does a recipe for cooking ox brains teach us history? Come find out at Casa Navarro’s new temporary exhibit, La Cocina en el Bolsillo: Early 20th Century Recipes for a Mexican Palate.
Learn about the shared culinary heritage of San Antonio and Mexico through a series of pocket sized cookbooks published at the turn of the 20th century. These recipe books are a window into the Mexican culinary traditions and popular culture of the tie. Free recipe cards for a few choice dishes are available while supplies last. The exhibit will run through January 27, 2019. Regular admission fees apply.
Casa Navarro is one of 22 historic sites operated by the Texas Historical Commission.
