ALEX-STUPAK-thumb123.jpgEmpellon's Alex Stupak files an essay on Medium about the challenges of cooking and serving "authentic" Mexican cuisine. "I do not want to alter what we love about Mexican cooking in this country," he writes, "but I do want to expand upon it." That's why even though "guacamole and margaritas are not so much of a 'thing' in non-tourist pockets of Mexico," he puts them on his menus, to serve as "gateway drugs that can be used to get people hooked on other things." [Medium] [Krieger]
