Ernesto Hernandez, Chapman University Law Professor, to Appear on Panel at National Street Food Conference
|Long may the lonchera reign...|
This weekend marks the spot of the San Francisco Street Food Festival, a monstrous gathering of food, talk, more food and more talk. I don't really pay much attention to outside-OC events that don't involve me, but Chapman University Law School professor Ernesto Hernandez wrote to me to share he'll be there on a panel called "The Life and Death of the Great American Food Truck."
Now, what the hell is a Chapman professor doing in Baghdad by the Bay pontificating about loncheras instead of Bruxie? Explanation after the jump!
Hernandez, of course, is one of the nation's premier taco-truck analysts, whose work has appeared in the Orange County Register and Good Food with Evan Kleiman. I met him at the happy hour we co-hosted with Evan at the Crosby earlier this year, but was only able to talk to him for like a minute before the hordes overwhelmed us asking where's Edwin. He said his participation would be "less scholarly and more cook and activist." AWESOME--good luck, profe, and fill us in on how it goes!
