About the Author
Mely Martínez started her blog, Mexico in My Kitchen, in 2008 for her teenage son, hoping that someday he will use it to recreate the Mexican food his mom made for the family. Mely was born and raised in the city of Tampico, Tamaulipas, and started helping in the kitchen at a very young age, since she was the oldest daughter of eight children. She and her siblings spent summers at her grandmother’s farm in the state of Veracruz, where part of the daily activities included helping to grind corn for making masa and gathering firewood for the woodburning stove. At the age of twenty, Mely moved to southern Mexico, where she worked as a teacher. This job gave her the opportunity to travel to all the states in the Yucatán Peninsula, and enjoy their excellent and unique cuisine. Throughout the years, she lived in other states in Mexico, and has traveled to most of them. By now, she had moved more than twenty times! Mely enjoys cooking classic meals that are eaten every day in Mexico, and sharing them with her followers around the world. Her recipes are created from knowledge gained throughout her studies, travels, and life experiences. She lives in Dallas, Texas.
