Buen Provecho! and proper manners. Note: You are not a donkey. Donkeys don’t know what to say, donkeys don’t have manners. You have manners. You are bien educado.
Learn about Mexican culture through our food expressions.

Sooo….”Buen provecho is always said at the beginning of a meal, or when we encounter someone eating. It is good manners to say it. Not to give this greeting leaves diners embarrassed for eating in one’s presence, and for not sharing their food-since there could be envy about the food. To not give the greeting is tantamount to cursing someone, or at the very least, sending out bad vibes. We, the Mexicans are very suspicious and superstitious.”

San Miguel native author of The Buen Provecho Book, Patricia Merrill Márquez, will once again entertain guests with her talks on Humor and Surprises in Mexican Cooking and Culture, this time expanded to three sessions due to popular demand.Tidbits of history and linguistics, Mexican culture and humor, are stirred into family anecdotes and stories to share amusing culinary “dichos”, expressions related to “the Mexican way of thinking”.
Try explaining “not my cup of tea” to a Spanish speaker...not so easy! Someone tells you they are bringing their media naranja to your party..what is it? Want to know what families prepared and how they cooked here in San Miguel 25, 50, 75, 100 years ago? Patricia’s family history dates much further back on her mother’s side. Her dad arrived on the GI bill in 1946.

This event benefits the Biblioteca.
