When I look at the last four years of my life, I feel amazed at all the stuff I have managed to cram into 1,460 days: a full time job, a blog I'm super proud of, plenty of cooking demonstrations and classes, family visits, an online business, a market stall, a bricks and mortar shop, a couple of TV segments and very slowly but surely the writing of my first cookery book... how did I manage all that? I'm not entirely sure. We live a day at a time and we try our best to live it well.... some days give us a great sense of accomplishment, others we're just happy to get through... it's all about moving, advancing, keeping momentum and learning in the process.

As I reflect today on the year just gone, I cannot believe that is going to be a year old next week! This time last year we were preocuppied with shop fit outs and today it's been all about the phasing out of My Mexican Shop and the cementing of Picado. We are so excited to have finaly merged our online home of 4 years () together with our bricks and mortar shop, Picado Mexican!

These four years of hard work have helped us define who we are and where we want to go... they have given us confidence, and defined our identity. That identity has now been imprinted in our online presence too. Hop in and take a look. I hope you all like it as much as we do.


Do you love tamales but not sure how to make them? This is the perfect workshop for you! Join us at Picado Mexican for a fun-filled evening of all things tamales!! Tamales are one of the oldest and most traditional dishes in Mexican cuisine. They are a celebratory meal and widely eaten all over the country. They are delicious, suitable for Coeliacs and a tiny bit tricky to make, but when you master the art of making them, you'll never stop!!

In this workshop, we'll show you how to make tamales from scratch. We'll make them with two different fillings (one meat one vegetarian) and make a couple of salsas too so you'll have plenty of hands-on practice. When they are ready, we'll sit down to a delicious meal with everything we cook.
