Hosted by

The offerings of regional Mexican food in the greater LA area is staggering even during this pandemic,  and yet Afro-Mexican food hasn’t been represented until now. Food journalist Bill Esparza shares the story behind Tamales Elenas. Chef Maria Elena Lorenzo takes the flavors of La Costa Chica in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero — and brings them to a drive-thru in Bell Gardens.
