Sunday Traveler: The Bakery in El Tuito, Mexico


El Tuito, a very small village about one hour south of Puerto Vallarta. We had a local driver who took us to this wonderful little town as part of our wish list of seeing real life Mexico. The bakery is in the back of a private home, set up on the patio.


The oven is made of cement and the door propped closed with a stick. All pretty rustic, but good things come out of there.


Cooking outdoors is probably the smartest thing to do anyway, as the weather is hot and humid here.




And the baker’s mom, keeping an eye on the flour dispensed

    Impressive look at a bucolic lifestyle. This is how it is in provincial areas in the Philippines, and I love it. Love the superb kitchenwares pic.

    I hate cooking in the Summer. This would just suit 🙂


  7. I always appreciated the simple, classic yet timeless cooking utensils and food preparation in the rural country. Once again, we are reminded the beauty and blessings of proven traditions. Somehow modernism took all these away from us. Thanks for a inspiring trip!

      So very true. Simplicity has it all over most modern utensils and cooking contraptions. Slow food and preparation with heart is the best.
      So good to see you again.


  8. Outdoors cook houses are such a good idea in hot climates, as you say, and somehow always manage to look rustic and welcoming like this beauty you found. Hope you stayed to enjoy the smells and what came out of that oven and cooking pot? Great shot of the old lady … (a little suspicious, do you think?) 🙂

      I love the rustic and simple environment here; it just felt welcoming. I did come away with some cookies, and they were delicious. The little old lady was very serious, and I think suspicious that I might run off with some flour 🙂

    I wish I could visit! Wonderful post!


  10. Reminds me of pleasing, similar scenes in Old Town San Diego and Albuquerque.


  11. A wonderful glimpse into this little world. I especially love the photo of the baker with the pink wall of pots and pans behind her.
