Cinco de Mayo With a French Twist
Julieta Ballesteros (Culinary '98) chef/owner of Crema chats with Gothamist about her fusion of traditional Mexican cuisine with French presentation. While Julieta regularly relies on her French training, she felt a week long celebration of Cinco de Mayo with a French twist would be appropriate. After all, the holiday marks the Mexican victory over the French in the 1862 Battle of Puebla. Her special menu will focus on French inspired food and drink, with an emphasis on food and tequila pairings. Enjoy Julieta's interview at gothamist.com.
