The holiday season is rapidly approaching, so this month Chef and author Amalia Moreno-Damgaard presents us with Joy in the Kitchen During the Holidays. As she explains, “Cooking can be as easy as you want it to be, just take a little time to think about what you enjoy.”
Our thanks to the photographers who entered this month’s photo contest Food in Guatemala and congratulations to the winners of both the popular and judges’ vote.

While many Latin American countries celebrate Dia de los Santos, Fiambre is unique to Guatemala. More than a food item, it is a symbol of Guatemalan love and community, We share with you this history of family and tradition on page 54.
Keep turning the pages and you will find a fantastic recipe for Garifuna Tapado using coconut milk and boat-fresh seafood, and we explore Expat Food Cravings while drones explore Lake Atitlán and the Pacific Coast giving us great video footage within this interactive magazine. Have a great November.
