A Foodie Trip to San Miguel de Allende

by Ben Calderoni

The sounds of the oil crackling over in a pan, the snap and sizzle of the pepper as it slides into the dish, ready to be served and the wonderful aroma that fills a room as soon as the waiter enters with your dish; these are the small sensations that make a foodie’s obsession with food worthwhile.

A foodie isn’t simply someone who eats anything that’s put in front of them. They know all the elements that go into turning a dish into something completely exquisite. They understand the significance of the fragrance, the clipped sound of well-tempered chocolate and the sudden hit of that chili as you savor a bite. For a foodie like so, how can anything but the best be good for them?

Since San Miguel de Allende is one of the best cities in the world, it welcomes a lot of food lovers from all over the world. And if you’re one of them, then Casa Calderoni, your friendly neighborhood bed and breakfast in San Miguel de Allende has just the foodie list for you.
