Pati's Mexican Table

The Blessing and The Benefit

Pati experiences two important Sonoran culinary traditions. First, on the coast in Bahía Kino, local fishermen receive “the blessing” from a woman from the Seri tribe before heading out on the water to catch giant sea scallops. Then, in the mountain town of Matape, Nere, one of Sonora’s few female butchers, skillfully breaks down a cow to feed the community in a tradition called “the benefit.”
