Best Prepared Foods

It’s particularly comforting if the food is prepared by Canyon Market, where a display case the length of a tractor trailer is stocked with everything from enchilada pie and cochinita pibil to stacks of grilled eggplant and a quinoa risotto served in the form of a savory cake. Add to that Canyon’s impressive assortment of spreads and dips, and you have plenty of reasons to never patronize either restaurant or stove again. —2017
