Vegan fish tacos in a cast iron pan with limes, tomato, and avocado

Welcome to Dora’s Table! This blog started as an outlet for my culinary creativity after leaving professional kitchens to become a stay-at-home mom. Over the years it has grown to be so much more than I could’ve ever imagined, but my mission remains the same: to recreate traditional Mexican dishes into vegan Mexican recipes, while preserving and celebrating the beauty and richness of the different regional cuisines of Mexico and what they represent.
