Renowned Los Angeles Chef Ray Garcia of both Broken Spanish & B.S. Taqueria talks with us about where he pulls inspiration from, how to open two restaurants at the same time, and how the taco has become the unofficial food of Los Angeles.
“[My grandmother, my mother] they were resourceful. They had what they had to make a good meal for themselves and their family. There was sincerity, there was warm, there was love in it. But now, as a chef, I have not only an opportunity but a responsibility to take it to that next level. What is it that am I able to do based off of ingredients and the techniques that are now available to me.” – Chef Ray Garcia
