Still Hungry? May 2017

Sweet May. Once again, the rough winds of early spring have brought us the warmer breath of Maia—May’s namesake—the goddess of fertility. In honor of springtime sunshine, green and warmth, and of course, our annual Outdoor Issue, we bring you four recipes to be enjoyed in the vast landscape of...

Albuquerque’s Rooftop Patios

With bright, sunny days that ease into cool, clear evenings, Albuquerque’s weather earns its much-lauded reputation this time of year. ’Tis the season for the outdoors, from shopping in plein-air farmers markets to imbibing on patios. With their lofty vantages, rooftop terraces level up the favored bar pastimes of people-watching,...

On the Pecos

The Pecos River flows south out of the great basin of the Pecos Wilderness. As is the case with nearly all of the Sangre de Cristo range to the north, the Pecos country has not suffered the ravages of fire, drought and blanket tree-kills that other Rocky Mountain ranges have....

Santa Fe’s Rooftop Hot Spots

Up on the roof, the real world slips away, expanding the wide sky above, transforming the city below. From a rooftop bar, the sunsets seem more dramatic and the stars look brighter—nearly close enough to touch. Your cares slip away, too, as you admire the view with a craft cocktail...

Bike and Brew

I’ve been asked what makes mountain biking in New Mexico special to me. For a brief question, I have a long and winding answer. My “love affair” (yes, my wife knows) with cycling began when I was given a sparkling blue Schwinn Stingray that I thought was the greatest gift...

Bad Ass Babes

“Do it,” I sputter. “Come on.” My eyes sting of sweat, my heart pounds in my ears and my lungs scream at me. I want to give up. I want to stop pedaling, stop climbing this steep rocky trail. I want to throw my bike aside and walk up, or...

Dreamers

The road less taken has, sadly, not many takers. All the more reason to champion Allegra Love, creator of the Santa Fe Dreamers Project. Charismatic, full of life, with energy to spare, she arrived in Santa Fe 12 years ago, a recent college graduate, eager to join the other teachers...

The Climb

One does not simply walk up Mount Baldy. Especially when one can’t quite remember the last time she hiked. Sure, we’ve got the gear, and we do go on the occasional hiking kicks, but we hadn’t recently. Nor had that well-intentioned winter workout regimen ever really gelled this year. Hiking...

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. We offer visitors an insider’s look at local culture, area museums, galleries, restaurants and recreation—the best activities to experience and places to eat during a visit to New Mexico. We celebrate the deep historical roots of our community, the ethnic diversity of our people and the unique character of life in the high desert. We do this through in-depth stories on individuals who we feel embody these ideals. At its best, Local Flavor captures the essence of who we are.

Still Hungry? April 2017

Like homesteading itself (timeless, creative, sustainable), many of our homesteading stories of yore haven’t lost their inspiration or relevance, and the folks who graced the cover shots haven’t lost their touch. If you’ve yet to check out our past homesteading stories (visit localflavormagazine.com), we suggest you meet jewelers Marian Denipah…

Ponderosa Valley Vineyards and Winery

“Henry Street was good at growing grapes, good at making wine, and good at selling wine,” Ponderosa Valley Vineyards and Winery Winemaker Mark Matheson says. “Each one of those is difficult, and it’s rare for one man to possess all those skills.” Though Henry, who co-founded the winery with his…
