Have you ever had tortillas infused with the flavors of the taco? Jonathan Perez of Macheen talks about how his time at culinary school shaped the tacos he makes every weekend at Smorgasburg LA on this week’s episode.
“To this day, I thank my mom. I feel like my mom is one of the big influences, why I decided to go towards a culinary route. I approached her and told her, ‘Hey, I don’t know what I want to do next, after high school and stuff.’ She’s like, At least get some kind of degree. Do something. I don’t want you to be here at home[….] Be better than us.’“ –Jonathan Perez on his mother’s influence
