Fonda Margarita.

Favorite quote (Spanish or English)?

“Farm to table and organic cooking aren’t trends, they’re a way of life and what the whole world should be doing”.

Chorizo quesadillas!!!

Your best skill?

Cooking. I love agriculture too, but cooking is a passion for me, it’s what i’ve done for most of my life...

What do you wish you could find from Mexico in NY?

* Lalo is not allowed to travel to the US, so he didn't really know how to answer this one. Learn more about Lalo's fascinating past in this NY Times article.
