    THIS TACO IS FOR YOU.

    One day in Spring of 2013, when you least expect it, you'll receive an email with a photo of a exquisite, delicious taco. There will be an explanation of what it is called, how you order it in spanish, where you can find it, and there will be photos of the taco cart or stand that it came from, and a picture of me eating it on your behalf!

    I will be taking photos of dozens and dozens of different types of tacos from all different regions of Mexico. Which one will you get?

    "This Taco Is For You" will be emailed between January 15th and May 15th, with different backers receiving different photos at different times. If you are vegetarian or vegan please let me know so I can choose your taco accordingly :-)

    The taco photo and history will make your day... it will make you smile... and trust me, it will make you hungry...

    THE TACO SPECIAL. You'll receive the above awards AND a DVD copy of my short documentary all about the tacos of Mexico. Unlike the shows main webisodes, it won't have anything to do with grandma cuisine- the "Taco Special" is all about Mexico's best taco carts, stands, and traditions. Did you know there are morning tacos and nighttime tacos? They are very different! By the end of the documentary you'll know how to order tacos like a pro. Also, this DVD will be a much higher definition and picture quality than the free grandmother recipe episodes on Youtube.

    And the best part? You'll open your package to find that your DVD is wrapped not in a chintzy plastic sleeve... BUT IN A CORN TORTILLA!!!

    MEXICAN ADVICE VIDEO MONTAGE- every country has their own unique proverbs or sayings, but let me tell you, Mexico is a land full to the brim with enlightening folk wisdoms, or "dichos."

This short, 10 to 15 minute long video documentary will be included on the same DVD as the Taco Special. It will be relaxing to watch and will inspire you each time you watch it. Of course you’ll receive all of the above awards as well...

    SPICY MEXICO WALL CALENDAR- all of the above rewards PLUS a customized calendar (July 2013 to July 2014) that has different hi-resolution photos of spicy Mexican chili peppers, salsa, and other hot foods for each month. Each photo will be accompanied by a description of that spicy foodstuff and a scale of how much it made Erik cry when he ate it.

    The calendar is complete with 1- real Mexican holidays and the foods that are traditionally eaten on those days AND 2- made-up holidays like “say Hola and Adios at work day,” “host a Mexican food pot luck day,” “send Mariachis to a friends house day” and “wear a sombrero and drink tequila all day day.” (Warning: that last one may appear several times... especially around Erik’s birthday...)
