Here’s my Alberta at Noon Podcast for today. I’m on between the 12 and 18 minute mark in the show.

You can find today’s recipes here.

Cinco de Mayo is about finding strength in unity and community. I think that’s a pretty great reason to fiesta and to savour it all.

Ramirez was kind enough to share the recipes included in this post. I hope you enjoy them and the photos of my market tour with him.
