Talkin' Huitlacoche Blues at El Rincón Chilango
|Photo by the brilliant Eddie Lin|
Huitlacoche was a topic last week on KCRW-FM 89.9's Good Food program. And it was also the subject of a piece I did for another radio program: Dinner Party Download, which airs occasionally on KPCC-FM 89.3.
Newman proved a sport and drove down. He's still relatively new to Southern California, so new that not only did he try huitlacoche for the first time ever (which he thoroughly enjoyed), but Newman also tried horchata--horchata!--for the first time. He also loved it. Guy's from Philly, and he admitted their regional mystery meats, Scrapple and pork roll (Dave: you HAVE to bring me some. Scrapple, I love, but pork roll I must try...), are far more bizarre eats than huitlacoche.
Anyhoo, below is the clip (or click here just in case it doesn't show). Download the show weekly--muy funny y informative! And bloggers: if a part-goombah from Philly can not only like huitlacoche but declare it just any other food, howzabout ustedes?
