We couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate the Chicano culture and work of José Montoya than with local ingredients and recipes inspired by LA’s favorite Chicano dishes.
WHY THIS BOX?
If you’ve always wondered how to cook tamales, here’s your chance! We have recipes (see below) and ingredients from Wes Avila of Guerrilla Tacos to cook Butternut Squash Tamales and Sweet Potato Tortillas. From Gilberto Cetina of Chichen Itza Restaurant, we have ingredients and a recipe for Ceviche. From Carlos Salgado of Taco Maria, we have a recipe for Salsa Negra to cook with chicken. And last but not least, we have a Carne Asada recipe from Roy Choy, just to put a multi-cultural spin on things.
GMO-free masa, corn husks, local grassfed carne asada, Santa Barbara Cheese Co. queso fresco, a variety of chilis, Rancho Gordo piloncillo sugar, fresh, local organic produce from our favorite farmers, and recipes from local chefs to prepare a variety of Mexicali meals.
WHY IT MATTERS:
Having grown up in the San Joaquin Valley as a field hand, Montoya experienced the harsh living conditions so many migrant farm workers endured. Life on the fields informed his activism, his poetry, and his art. Montoya worked tirelessly in support of Cesar Chavez’s United Farm Workers movement to ensure fair labor standards. How better to honor Montoya and his efforts than with a box of locally and sustainably grown food celebrating Chicano culture?
