November 2013 in Revue Magazine
The focus is on food! Mouth-watering photos of food grace the pages from this month’s Photo Contest theme. Garífuna Vibrations tells the story of a remarkable group of people who have brought the world dance, music and unique food. The Book Alert is Amalia’s Guatemalan Kitchen, plus an Interview with the author Amalia Moreno-Damgaard. A Healthy Taste of Tradition explains how easy and delicious it is to create Guatemalan fare—vegetarian style. With an eye towards healthy eating Shopping Organically explains organic labeling and more. For fresh vegetables and fruits where else to go but To Market, To Market. Sensuous Guatemala highlights Eggplant and Liquid Gold practically drips honey right off the page! Quotes this month are all about food. Find out little-known Food Facts, for instance did you know that banana trees are not really trees? They are considered to be giant herb plants; and when Heinz ketchup leaves the bottle, it travels at a rate of 25 miles per year!
On the cultural front you’ll find all kinds of listings in Datebook: music, art, dance, workshops, retreats, films … Art lovers will enjoy reading M@donnas: Reinterpretations of the Image of Mary, Spanish American Sculpture in Guatemala and Traditions en Madera; music also takes center stage, with among other concerts, the much anticipated performances of Handel’s Messiah.
