On my explorations of the local latino culinary scene, I have noticed this term to come up quite a bit. I believe a rough translation would be: style of...
For example, today I saw "Borrego Estilo P...(achuga?), Hidalgo.
It really gives me pleasure to see that people are proud of their traditions and patrimony. This, and the honorific sense it imparts on a dish as well as the refreshing sense of history -- cuisine was once inextricably bound to your surroundings (only local herbs, veg, livestock etc).
So much for or magic 1000 mile traveling food of today...
While I have not researched throughly into this tradition, I have only seen it usually attached with Mexican states, and even towns- as above and as mentioned in Rworange's SF board post on a bread from an extremely small town in Michoacan.
So I ask chowhounds out there if they have seen this and if so would they contribute the example. This would be a great thread to have in the archive to preserve this wonderful tradition and to have to search.
Many thanks for bearing with this tangent post.
