Mazatlan koker opp en storm, og kokkene vil at flere besøkende skal komme til bordet.

Sjøsiden Meksikanskbyen ligger i delstaten Sinaloa, som er kjent som landbrukets hovedstad i landet. Men en ny bølge av kokker og byens turistavdeling ønsker at området skal være kjent for maten den lager - spesialiteter inkluderer grillet mahi mahi,blekksprut i hvitløkssaus, og mange reke-baserte retter -som maten den vokser.

“Det lokale kjøkkenet er brakt til et nytt nivå. Vi kaller det det nye Mazatlecan -kjøkkenet. Det er det samme typiske kjøkkenet, men brakt inn i en mer gourmetstil, en mer raffinert stil. Dette er en ny gastronomisk bevegelse som turister ikke kan gå glipp av, sier Julio Birrueta, direktøren for byens reiselivsråd, som dekket utgifter til The Daily Meals besøk.

Birrueta peker på Diego's Beach House, El Fish Market, La Mazatleca, og El Presidio som bare noen få av restaurantene i forkant av byens voksende kulinariske scene. I oktober ønsket byen velkommen sin nyeste restaurant, den elegante Casa 46, med utsikt over Plazuela Machado (Machado Square), i hjertet av gamle Mazatlan. Kjøkkensjefen er Marino Maganda, en veteran på det nærliggende Pueblo Bonito -hotellet, som ble kåret til et av de 50 beste hotellene i Mexico av Travel + Leisure i 2014.

Historie er viktig for Mazatlans identitet; den nye slagordet er "kolonialbyen ved stranden." Det ble grunnlagt i det sekstende århundre, og ble en viktig havn, men selv om fiske fortsatt er en stor næring, har turismen overgått byen som byens største pengemaker. Og det er grunn til å tro at turistdollar, spesielt fra USA og Canada, vil bli en enda større bit av kaken. Hotellutvidelse kan legge til 5000 rom i beholdningen innen 2022, ifølge et estimat fra Wyndham Hotel Group.

Utvikling imøtekommer i mellomtiden økningen i interesse - og akselererer den. I 2012 pumpet byen millioner av dollar inn i Centro Historico, og mer restaureringsarbeid gjenstår. En ny motorvei mellom byen og Durango betyr at reisende kan reise mellom de to byene på mindre enn tre timer. Og dagsturer til nærliggende byer utvides. I El Quelite er den vidstrakte restauranten El Meson De Los Laureanos et reisemål i seg selv, med en overdådig oversikt over tradisjonell livemusikk og dans for å følge diners måltider.

Kan økende fokus på besøkende begrense Mazatlans autentiske stemning? Birrueta tror ikke det.

"Jeg tror det er et problem for mange destinasjoner, ikke bare i Mexico, men rundt om i verden: Når de eksploderer, mister de virkelig karakteren sin. Men Mazatlan er annerledes i det aspektet. Det er lokal aktivitet, lokal historie, lokal kultur som virkelig gjør en stor forskjell, sa Birrueta.

Alkoholproduksjon er en del av den kulturen. Los Osuna, for eksempel, driver fortsatt forretninger omtrent på samme måte som i 1876, da Andres Osuna y Osuna ledet sin første utvinning og destillasjon av blå agave. Destilleriet, som ligger i utkanten av byen La Noria i nærheten, gjærer i tretanker, bruker lokal gjær og tilfører ikke kunstige smaker.

"De vil vise hele verden at Sinaloa lager et virkelig godt produkt, og de vil gjøre det som for hundre år siden å vise de tradisjonelle smakene og aromaene til Sinaloa," sa manager Luis Daniel Limon under en tur på plantasjen.

Tilbake i byen, i mellomtiden, er Onilikan et nytt mikro-destilleri i byens "Golden Zone" som ærer regionens landbruk mens han nyskaper. Mikrodestilleriet bruker både blå agave og mango i likører og brennevin og blander europeiske og meksikanske produksjonsmetoder. Med maksimal kapasitet kan den lage 400 flasker om dagen.

"Med produktet kan de se alle råvarene som dyrkes her. Sinaloa er kjent som gården i Mexico. Vi vokser mange ting. Vi utvikler andre produkter som vil vise frem for eksempel tomatene som vi dyrker mye her og kikerter og mange andre ting vi dyrker her, sier Victoria Campos, kommersiell direktør i Onilikan.

Campos ble født i Mexico City men flyttet til Mazatlan for 12 år siden for å jobbe i eiendom. Hun og broren Manuel - en tidligere immunolog - startet sin virksomhet som en måte å holde seg opptatt under pensjonisttilværelsen. Det har ikke alltid vært lett. Ting tok en dukkert i 2010 da flere cruiselinjer sluttet å komme til byen blant rapporter om kriminalitet. Men skipene er tilbake nå, og da virksomheten tar seg opp, er hun, som mange i mat- og drikkeindustrien her, ivrige etter å vise besøkende hva de har å tilby.

“Grunnen til at vi begynte her i dette området var at vi hadde trafikk av mange turister, men plutselig hadde vi ingen. Så i tre år var det veldig tøft. Men nå vokser alt, alt blomstrer, alt kommer tilbake, ”sa hun.


Eric Carle, forfatteren og illustratøren av The Very Hungry Caterpillar, dør 91 år gammel

Eric Carle, barneforfatteren og illustratøren hvis klassiker The Very Hungry Caterpillar og andre verk ga millioner av barn noen av de tidligste litterære minnene, har dødd i en alder av 91 år.

Carles familie sa at han døde av nyresvikt søndag i sommerstudioet hans i Northampton, Massachusetts, med familiemedlemmer ved sin side.

Torsdag hyllet alle sektorer i det kreative samfunnet offentlig forfatteren og hans arbeid, inkludert Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, indierockbandet Mountain Goats og skuespilleren Mia Farrow.

Jeg elsker Eric Carle. Kan ikke telle de gangene jeg og barna mine ble koset, fullstendig henrykt i bøkens herlighet. Han var en gave til menneskeheten. Kjærlighet for alltid, brutt gjennom til den andre siden, Eric Carle. https://t.co/5N2dhEvdWS

Det er umulig å anslå antallet svært unge liv der hans milde, nysgjerrige stemme har gjort en forskjell. Undring, glede, komforten til en kjent stemme. Takk, Eric Carle, for uforglemmelige tider med sønnene mine da de var veldig små. https://t.co/DZH8sR6aCN

Den bestselgende barnebokforfatteren og skaperen av Lunch Lady -serien, Jarret J. Krosoczka, skrev: “Å ha tilbrakt tid med Eric Carle var det nærmeste man kunne komme til å henge med selve julenissen. Bøkene hans og hans forkjempelse for kunsten vil fortsette å risle gjennom tiden. Men vi i barnebokmiljøet kommer til å savne ham veldig. ”

Sesam Street -forfatteren og illustratøren Mo Willems - mannen bak hitboken Pigeon barnebokserie - beskrev ham som "en gentleman med en rampete sjarm".

Eric Carle er død- men han forlot oss den uforglemmelige Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear, Brown Bear- bøker jeg leste for barna mine og nå mine barnebarn. Kjærlige tanker med familien og veldig stor takknemlighet for Carle. ♥ ️ https://t.co/McNZ6IxROa

Gjennom bøker som Brunbjørn, Brunbjørn, Hva ser du ?, Vil du være min venn? og Fra topp til tå introduserte Carle universelle temaer i enkle ord og lyse farger.

"Det ukjente bringer ofte frykt med seg," sa han en gang. “I bøkene mine prøver jeg å motvirke denne frykten, å erstatte den med et positivt budskap. Jeg tror at barn naturligvis er kreative og ivrige etter å lære. Jeg vil vise dem at læring virkelig er både fascinerende og morsomt. ”

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, utgitt i 1969, ble ønsket velkommen av foreldre og barn med sin historie om metamorfosen til en grønn og rød larve med et snev av blått og brunt til en stolt flerfarget sommerfugl.

Opprinnelig oppfattet som en bok om en bokorm - kalt A Week with Willi the Worm - ble helten, som spiser gjennom 26 forskjellige matvarer, omgjort til en larve etter råd fra sin redaktør. Den har solgt 40 millioner eksemplarer og er oversatt til 60 språk, skapte utstoppede dyrelarver og har blitt omgjort til et scenespill.

Først fant Carle denne populariteten et mysterium. "Men etter hvert har jeg trodd at mange barn kan identifisere seg med den hjelpeløse, lille, ubetydelige larven," forklarte han til The Guardian i 2016, "og de gleder seg når det blir en vakker sommerfugl. Jeg tror det er et budskap om håp. Det står: Jeg kan også vokse opp. Jeg kan også brette vingene mine ut (mitt talent) og fly inn i verden. ”

Carle skrev og/eller illustrerte mer enn 75 bøker, noen ganger samarbeider med Bill Martin Jr eller andre forfattere, men de fleste med Carle som jobber alene. En av hans siste bøker var The Nonsense Show fra 2015, som fokuserte på en parade med flygende fisk, katt-temmende mus og sirkusdyr.

Carles mor og far var født i Syracuse, New York i 1929, og var tyske immigranter som flyttet familien tilbake til Stuttgart på midten av 1930-tallet, da tusenvis var på vei den andre veien. Da Europa raste mot andre verdenskrig, lengtet Carle tilbake til USA. Faren ble vernepliktig i den tyske hæren og tilbrakte åtte år som russisk krigsfange, mens Carle fikk i alderen 15 år å grave skyttergraver langs Siegfried -linjen. "Og den første dagen ble tre mennesker drept noen få meter unna," sa han til The Guardian i 2009. "Ikke barn - russiske fanger eller noe. Sykepleierne kom og begynte å gråte. Og i Stuttgart, vår hjemby, var huset vårt det eneste som sto. Når jeg sier stående, mener jeg taket og vinduene er borte, og dørene. Og… vel, det er du. ”

Da kunstlæreren på videregående skole så Carles talent, inviterte han ham hjem til ham for å se på reproduksjoner av forbudt ekspresjonistisk og abstrakt kunst-bilder som Carle først syntes var sjokkerende. "Jeg hadde ikke den minste anelse om at noe slikt eksisterte," husket han, "fordi jeg var vant til at kunsten var å flagge, våpen-tote arier-superrealistiske ariske bønder, kvinnene med sine brute armer. Det var kunst. "

Faren introduserte ham for underverkene til de levende skapningene som han senere skulle forevige i bøkene sine. "Da jeg var et lite barn, så langt jeg kan huske, tok han meg i hånden og vi gikk ut i naturen," sa han til The New York Times i 1994. "Og han ville vise meg ormer og insekter og bier og maur og forklare livet deres for meg. Det var et veldig kjærlig forhold. ”

Etter endt utdanning fra en ledende tysk kunstskole kom han tilbake til USA i 1952. Han jobbet som grafisk designer i reklameavdelingen i The New York Times før han gikk over til reklame. Hans signaturstil kom fra lyst silkepapir, stipplet og smurt med akrylmaling, som deretter ble kuttet med en kniv og festet på hvitt papp for å danne dristige motiver.

I løpet av karrieren samlet Carle en rekke premier, inkludert Regina -medaljen, Laura Ingalls Wilder -prisen og Society of Illustrators -prisen for livstid. I 2002 grunnla han Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art i Amherst, Massachusetts, hvor han bodde sammen med sin andre kone Barbara i mer enn 30 år. Museet har mer enn 7 300 originale illustrasjoner, og organiserer utstillinger og utdanningsprogrammer.

"Det ukjente bringer ofte frykt med seg," sa han en gang. “I bøkene mine prøver jeg å motvirke denne frykten, å erstatte den med et positivt budskap. Jeg tror at barn naturligvis er kreative og ivrige etter å lære. Jeg vil vise dem at læring virkelig er både fascinerende og morsomt. ”

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, utgitt i 1969, ble ønsket velkommen av foreldre og barn med sin historie om metamorfosen til en grønn og rød larve med et snev av blått og brunt til en stolt flerfarget sommerfugl.

Opprinnelig oppfattet som en bok om en bokorm - kalt A Week with Willi the Worm - ble helten, som spiser gjennom 26 forskjellige matvarer, omgjort til en larve etter råd fra redaktøren. Den har solgt 40 millioner eksemplarer og er oversatt til 60 språk, skapte utstoppede dyrelarver og har blitt omgjort til et scenespill.

Først fant Carle denne populariteten et mysterium. "Men etter hvert har jeg trodd at mange barn kan identifisere seg med den hjelpeløse, lille, ubetydelige larven," forklarte han til The Guardian i 2016, "og de gleder seg når det blir en vakker sommerfugl. Jeg tror det er et budskap om håp. Det står: Jeg kan også vokse opp. Jeg kan også brette ut vingene (mitt talent) og fly inn i verden. ”

Carle skrev og/eller illustrerte mer enn 75 bøker, noen ganger samarbeider med Bill Martin Jr eller andre forfattere, men de fleste med Carle som jobber alene. En av hans siste bøker var The Nonsense Show fra 2015, som fokuserte på en parade med flygende fisk, katt-temmende mus og sirkusdyr.

Carles mor og far var født i Syracuse, New York i 1929, og var tyske immigranter som flyttet familien tilbake til Stuttgart på midten av 1930-tallet, da tusenvis var på vei den andre veien. Da Europa raste mot andre verdenskrig, lengtet Carle tilbake til USA. Faren ble vernepliktig i den tyske hæren og tilbrakte åtte år som russisk krigsfange, mens Carle fikk i alderen 15 år å grave skyttergraver langs Siegfried -linjen. “And the first day three people were killed a few feet away,” he told the Guardian in 2009. “Not children – Russian prisoners or something. The nurses came and started crying. And in Stuttgart, our home town, our house was the only one standing. When I say standing, I mean the roof and windows are gone, and the doors. And … well, there you are.”

When his high-school art teacher saw Carle’s talent, he invited him to his house to look at reproductions of banned expressionist and abstract art – images that Carle at first found shocking. “I didn’t have the slightest idea that something like that existed,” he recalled, “because I was used to art being flag-waving, gun-toting Aryans – super-realistic Aryan farmers, the women with their brute arms. That was art.”

His father introduced him to the wonders of the living creatures that he would later immortalise in his books. “When I was a small child, as far back as I can remember, he would take me by the hand and we would go out in nature,” he told The New York Times in 1994. “And he would show me worms and bugs and bees and ants and explain their lives to me. It was a very loving relationship.”

After graduating from a leading German art school, he returned to the United States in 1952. He worked as a graphic designer in the promotion department of The New York Times before switching to advertising. His signature style came from bright tissue paper, stippled and smeared with acrylic paint, which was then cut with a knife and stuck on to white cardboard to form bold designs.

Over the course of his career, Carle assembled an array of prizes including the Regina medal, the Laura Ingalls Wilder award and the Society of Illustrators lifetime achievement award. In 2002, he founded the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts, where he lived with his second wife Barbara for more than 30 years. The museum holds more than 7,300 original illustrations, and organises exhibitions and educational programmes.

Eric Carle, the children’s author and illustrator whose classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other works gave millions of children some of their earliest literary memories, has died at age 91.

Carle’s family said he died of kidney failure on Sunday at his summer studio in Northampton, Massachusetts, with family members at his side.

On Thursday, all sectors of the creative community were publicly paying tribute to the author and his work, including Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, indie rock band the Mountain Goats and actor Mia Farrow.

Oh man, I love Eric Carle. Cannot count the times my children and I were cuddled up, completely enraptured in the glory of his books. He was a gift to humanity. Love forever, broken through to the other side, Eric Carle. https://t.co/5N2dhEvdWS

Through books such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Do You Want to Be My Friend? and From Head to Toe, Carle introduced universal themes in simple words and bright colours.

“The unknown often brings fear with it,” he once said. “In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, published in 1969, was welcomed by parents and children with its story of the metamorphosis of a green and red caterpillar with a touch of blue and brown to a proudly multi-coloured butterfly.

Originally conceived as a book about a bookworm – called A Week with Willi the Worm – the hero, who eats through 26 different foods, was changed to a caterpillar on the advice of his editor. It has sold 40m copies and been translated into 60 languages, spawned stuffed animal caterpillars and has been turned into a stage play.

At first, Carle found this popularity a mystery. “But over time I have come to believe many children can identify with the helpless, small, insignificant caterpillar,” he explained to the Guardian in 2016, “and they rejoice when it turns into a beautiful butterfly. I think it’s a message of hope. It says: I too can grow up. I too can unfold my wings (my talent) and fly into the world.”

Carle wrote and/or illustrated more than 75 books, sometimes partnering with Bill Martin Jr or other authors, but most with Carle working alone. One of his last books was 2015’s The Nonsense Show, which centred on a parade of flying fish, cat-taming mice and circus animals.

Born in Syracuse, New York in 1929, Carle’s mother and father were German immigrants who moved the family back to Stuttgart in the mid-1930s, when thousands were heading the other way. As Europe hurtled towards the second world war, Carle longed to return to the US. His father was conscripted into the German army and spent eight years as a Russian prisoner of war, while Carle was assigned aged 15 to dig trenches along the Siegfried line. “And the first day three people were killed a few feet away,” he told the Guardian in 2009. “Not children – Russian prisoners or something. The nurses came and started crying. And in Stuttgart, our home town, our house was the only one standing. When I say standing, I mean the roof and windows are gone, and the doors.

Sesame Street writer and illustrator Mo Willems – the man behind the hit Pigeon kids’ book series – described him as “a gentleman with a mischievous charm”.

This is the gift that Eric Carle gave me on the first day I visited his studio. Over the next 13 years he gave me such a greater gift: his friendship. A gentleman w/ a mischievous charm. RIP. pic.twitter.com/jyJdJfzqCN

Through books such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Do You Want to Be My Friend? and From Head to Toe, Carle introduced universal themes in simple words and bright colours.

“The unknown often brings fear with it,” he once said. “In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, published in 1969, was welcomed by parents and children with its story of the metamorphosis of a green and red caterpillar with a touch of blue and brown to a proudly multi-coloured butterfly.

Originally conceived as a book about a bookworm – called A Week with Willi the Worm – the hero, who eats through 26 different foods, was changed to a caterpillar on the advice of his editor. It has sold 40m copies and been translated into 60 languages, spawned stuffed animal caterpillars and has been turned into a stage play.

At first, Carle found this popularity a mystery. “But over time I have come to believe many children can identify with the helpless, small, insignificant caterpillar,” he explained to the Guardian in 2016, “and they rejoice when it turns into a beautiful butterfly. I think it’s a message of hope. It says: I too can grow up. I too can unfold my wings (my talent) and fly into the world.”

Carle wrote and/or illustrated more than 75 books, sometimes partnering with Bill Martin Jr or other authors, but most with Carle working alone. One of his last books was 2015’s The Nonsense Show, which centred on a parade of flying fish, cat-taming mice and circus animals.

Born in Syracuse, New York in 1929, Carle’s mother and father were German immigrants who moved the family back to Stuttgart in the mid-1930s, when thousands were heading the other way. As Europe hurtled towards the second world war, Carle longed to return to the US. His father was conscripted into the German army and spent eight years as a Russian prisoner of war, while Carle was assigned aged 15 to dig trenches along the Siegfried line. “And the first day three people were killed a few feet away,” he told the Guardian in 2009. “Not children – Russian prisoners or something. The nurses came and started crying. And in Stuttgart, our home town, our house was the only one standing. When I say standing, I mean the roof and windows are gone, and the doors. And … well, there you are.”

When his high-school art teacher saw Carle’s talent, he invited him to his house to look at reproductions of banned expressionist and abstract art – images that Carle at first found shocking. “I didn’t have the slightest idea that something like that existed,” he recalled, “because I was used to art being flag-waving, gun-toting Aryans – super-realistic Aryan farmers, the women with their brute arms. That was art.”

His father introduced him to the wonders of the living creatures that he would later immortalise in his books. “When I was a small child, as far back as I can remember, he would take me by the hand and we would go out in nature,” he told The New York Times in 1994. “And he would show me worms and bugs and bees and ants and explain their lives to me. It was a very loving relationship.”

After graduating from a leading German art school, he returned to the United States in 1952. He worked as a graphic designer in the promotion department of The New York Times before switching to advertising. His signature style came from bright tissue paper, stippled and smeared with acrylic paint, which was then cut with a knife and stuck on to white cardboard to form bold designs.

Over the course of his career, Carle assembled an array of prizes including the Regina medal, the Laura Ingalls Wilder award and the Society of Illustrators lifetime achievement award. In 2002, he founded the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts, where he lived with his second wife Barbara for more than 30 years. The museum holds more than 7,300 original illustrations, and organises exhibitions and educational programmes.


Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar author and illustrator, dies at 91

Eric Carle, the children’s author and illustrator whose classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other works gave millions of children some of their earliest literary memories, has died at age 91.

Carle’s family said he died of kidney failure on Sunday at his summer studio in Northampton, Massachusetts, with family members at his side.

On Thursday, all sectors of the creative community were publicly paying tribute to the author and his work, including Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, indie rock band the Mountain Goats and actor Mia Farrow.

Oh man, I love Eric Carle. Cannot count the times my children and I were cuddled up, completely enraptured in the glory of his books. He was a gift to humanity. Love forever, broken through to the other side, Eric Carle. https://t.co/5N2dhEvdWS

It is impossible to estimate the number very young lives in which his gentle, curious voice has made a difference. Wonder, delight, the comfort of a familiar voice. Thanks, Eric Carle, for unforgettable times with my sons when they were very small. https://t.co/DZH8sR6aCN

Det var et veldig kjærlig forhold. ”

Etter endt utdanning fra en ledende tysk kunstskole kom han tilbake til USA i 1952. Han jobbet som grafisk designer i reklameavdelingen i The New York Times før han gikk over til reklame. Hans signaturstil kom fra lyst silkepapir, stipplet og smurt med akrylmaling, som deretter ble kuttet med en kniv og festet på hvitt papp for å danne dristige motiver.

I løpet av karrieren samlet Carle en rekke premier, inkludert Regina -medaljen, Laura Ingalls Wilder -prisen og Society of Illustrators -prisen for livstid. I 2002 grunnla han Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art i Amherst, Massachusetts, hvor han bodde sammen med sin andre kone Barbara i mer enn 30 år. Museet har mer enn 7 300 originale illustrasjoner, og organiserer utstillinger og utdanningsprogrammer.
