As Latino heritage month gets underway, the Mexico Food Fair runs until Friday, Sept. 20 at the L.A. Convention Center. The Mexico Food Fair is being described by organizers as "an unprecedented showcase" of notable chefs from both sides of the border and a presentation of the "gastronomical wealth of Mexico through the diversity of flavors from its vast regions," that now not only include Mexico but Los Angeles and many other U.S. cities. Mayor Garcetti, welcomed the event, now in it's third year, to Los Angeles.
Organizers of the Mexico Food Fair said this event will offer the knowledge and cuisine from top chefs from both sides of the border and will offer "the widest array of Mexican foods imaginable, so that both the public and industry buyers can choose the best products at the best prices; while giving the producers an opportunity to broaden their client base in the U.S. market."
Among the award winning International Chefs is Rocio Camacho, a female chef, who has reached much success as a chef and restauranteur in what is most often, a man's world.
Camacho will speak not only about her vast knowledge of Mexican cuisine and food culture, but about the development of contemporary Mexican food with an emphasis on healthful eating. She is considered a foremost authority on Mexico's delectable sauces, known as "Mole", as well as Mexico's food culture. She is scheduled to speak and provide a food demonstration on Friday.
A native of Oaxaca, Mexico, now living in Los Angeles, she said it is her goal to share the traditional recipes handed down to her by her mother and grandmother, and the numerous contemporary recipes that she has created at her Sun Valley restaurant, Rocio's Mole De Los Dioses. Camacho believes Mexican cuisine is very complex but often incorrectly perceived as having only one note.
This food fair is the first of a series of events of its kind, which will take place annually in California and will also travel throughout the United States. Admission is free and open to the public.
