Visit the studio of Afro-Mexican ceramicist Dagoberto Gonzalez, whose clay work is crafted from the volcanic black sands of his ancestor’s villages

Watch taqueros spin out plates of tacos al pastor, the city-wide favourite with Ottoman origins
Fare is a bi-annual print publication exploring city culture through the intersection of food, history, and community. Each issue is guided by locals of the city. We try to use as many local writers, photographers, and illustrators as possible, so that in addition to expert insight, you also get a sense of the creative aesthetic.
