Bread of the Dead

and other Dia de los Muertos recipes

November 1st, the Day of the Dead, is nearly upon us, and that means marigolds, skeletal makeup and altars built to honor the deceased. But don’t forget the food!

It is traditional for celebrants to honor departed loved ones by cooking up their favorite meals and placing a portion on a memorial altar or even on the person’s grave itself, symbolically sharing the food with those who have passed on.

Over at the Fiery Foods Blog, Dave DeWitt, Patrick Holian and former Alibi food editor Gwyneth Doland have put together some Dia de los Muertos appropriate recipes for you to use in your celebration of the lives of those who are now gone. Enjoy!
