Still Hungry? March 2017

In recent years, we’ve been learning more and more about the importance of early childhood education. Of course, a full education includes all aspects of the person, from the body to the mind—and all aspects of the nourishment of a person begin, well, at the beginning of a person’s life....

The Siege of Chaco Canyon

It will not be simple. It will not be fast.  It will be a slow, steady river that braids our communities together. Visiting Chaco Canyon, the pinnacle of the ancient Anasazi civilization, is an experience that makes such a deeply lasting impression on your psyche that it will continue to...

Chef 2 Chef: Joseph Wrede

Walking uninvited through the swinging doors into a chef’s kitchen is like wandering into someone’s walk-in closet. Either you’re curiously welcomed, or unceremoniously tossed out. That’s how I first met Joe, breaching the swinging doors of Joseph’s of Santa Fe in the middle of service, and strangely asking to meet...

Ninja Park Warriors

In 2014, Travis Iverson was diagnosed with a five-centimeter aneurysm near his heart. To save his life, doctors conducted open-heart surgery. Seven months later, Travis was back in the gym, but not lifting weights as he had been. To avoid undo strain on his heart, he joined the Ninja Park...

Local Flavor is northern New Mexico’s complimentary food, wine and lifestyle magazine for Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos and Los Alamos. Local Flavor is read avidly by people living in northern New Mexico, as well as by thousands of visitors who travel to our area each year. Since 1994, Local Flavor has published stories about New Mexico chefs, restaurants, farmers, vintners, recipes and wine. In 2001, we added more flavors to the mix, and now include home decor, travel, design, arts and artisans, personal style, gardening, music and events.

At noon on Feb.14, 2012, Don Davis and the team behind The Oasis were set to launch a new, independent radio station. After years of waiting to revive smooth jazz on local airwaves—and an ill-timed computer crash that morning that nearly scrubbed the launch—they pushed play on Pat Metheny’s “Last…
