Bricia Lopez: The Essence of Oaxaca
Listen now
On this episode of The Meals That Made Me, Adam talks with Bricia Lopez - a restaurateur, author, social activist, and co-owner of the James Beard award-winning L.A. Oaxacan restaurant, Guelaguetza. Dubbed “LA’s Oaxacan Princess,” by the late L.A. Times food critic Jonathan Gold, Bricia shares her passion for Oaxacan culture and the rich culinary traditions and indigenous flavors that she holds close to her heart. From the complex ingredients for mole that go well beyond just chocolate, to her father’s early days in America selling tlayudas with a crunchy pork paste as a street vendor in L.A., and to why she believes that making a great salsa can impress anyone, these are the meals that made Bricia Lopez.
