Inspired by Frida Kahlo

Welcome to A Taste of Frida's México!This summer, the fantastic Frida Kahlo Art Exhibit is at the Cleve Carney Art Museum on the campus of the College of DuPage. In honor of the event, Suzette's owner, Donna Hesik, traveled to México to research and get inspired by Frida's hometown. Watch her video travelogue, below. She explored the flavors, aromas and colors of México City and is ready to share what she found with you! We look forward to seeing you soon.
