Mujeres en Cambio





Thursday, January 25, 2-4 PM
CASA DE LA NOCHE, Organos 19

Please join Mujeres en Cambio at our first Souper Bowl event.

On Thursday, January 25 at 2 PM, some of San Miguel’s best chefs and cooks will gather at Casa de la Noche, Organos 19, to provide an array of delicious soups that will definitely awaken your appetite and calm your hunger.

We’ll have vegetable soups, cream soups, chicken soups, chilies, international flavors, and more. There will be a topping bar so you can personalize your soup just the way you like it. There will be lots of fun and food, but there will not be any football!

WHY SOUP? The pioneer French chef, restaurateur and culinary writer Auguste Escoffier said, "Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, and awakens and refines the appetite." For many of us soup is a pleasant childhood memory. Our mothers gave us soup when we were sick and to make us feel safe and warm on a cold wet night. For all of us, soup is still comforting and healing, but most importantly, soup is meant for sharing with friends and family.

Tickets, which cost 500 pesos in person or $27.50 via PayPal, include all the soup you can eat and one complimentary wine, beer or soft drink. See you at the Souper Bowl!

Please join us in this happy celebration of life as we dance to beautiful music from around the world.


November 2017, LA CREME DE LA FEMME

This wonderful, very well-attended event, was a tribute to all the fine women chefs of San Miguel.  The food was delicious and varied, the music was wonderful, the countryside was peaceful, and it was a beautiful afternoon for a party.


The 2017 General Membership Meeting of Mujeres en Cambio, open to all MeC members and supporters, was held at St. Paul’s Church.  Reports were heard from the chairs of our various committees---Finance, Scholarship, Events, Rug Hook Project, Fundraising, Special Projects---and the Officers of the Board were elected.

October 2017, 4th ANNUAL FASHION SHOW

This very upbeat event, held at the Instituto Allende, featured fifteen models from the community elegantly modeling the new designs of Angela Nasta of Sindashi. Moving to the beat of the live music of "Media Luna,” this show was one of our most successful events to date. We were pleased to meet some of the artists, embroiderers and bead sewers from the rural areas employed by Angela who make the create the beautiful outfits worn by the models and sold at Sindashi. It should be noted that Angela provides work to over 100 people in the campo.

September 2017, FEST FOR THE BREAST

The luncheon was an exquisite event--with wonderful food, a captivating speaker and great company, all in a perfect setting!  Many thanks to the lovely, elegant Hotel Hacienda Mexiquito for hosting our event and to our luncheon speaker, Janet Dawson, art historian and lecturer.

December 2016, MEN WHO COOK

Held at a lovely Tuscan-style villa just minutes from San Miguel, Men Who Cook was one of our most popular events of 2016.  We are very grateful to our excellent cooks who presented an array of delicious entrees, hors d'oeurves, and desserts.  Our guests strolled around the 2-acre property filled with ancient mesquite trees and lovely gardens while tasting the varied menu.  A good time was had by all!


This lovely benefit luncheon, at which we honored our special friend, Alicia Franyutti, was held at Hacienda de Las Flores. For the past 20 years, Alicia, the owner of Hacienda de Las Flores, has provided MeC with a home for our successful fundraising luncheons. Our guest chef for this special celebration was Michael Coon, consummate chef, cooking teacher, and culinary travel guide. The food was fabulous and the camaraderie fantastic. It was a sweet, nostalgic afternoon.


What an elegant way to spend an afternoon!  As our guests arrived at the very lovely Hotel Hacienda Mexiquito wearing their finest midday attire, they were handed a complimentary glass of champagne.  Following a presentation by Eva Eliscu---tea historian, author, lecturer and former importer of fine teas---detailing the fascinating intricacies of the history of tea and its important place in the many cultures of the world, our guests were treated to a lovely, elegant afternoon of fine teas, pastries and sandwiches. This was a very beautiful event.
