KCRW's Good Food Devotes Cinco de Mayo Show to History of Mexican Food in Southern California, With Gustavo as Co-Host!

Nearly a year ago, I pitched the KCRW-FM 89.9 brass with a bold idea: give me an hour to turn my then-rough Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, into a one-hour special about the history of Mexican food in the United States. They not only liked the idea, they one-upped me: they allowed me to sit in alongside food goddess Evan Kleiman on Good Food.

The results aired today, and they're AWESOME!!!
