“El Arte de la Cocina” is a short documentary by Alberto Roblest, creator of Hola Cultura, based on conversations with Washington, D.C.’s, top Latin chefs about the many ways culinary traditions connect Latinos with themselves, their families, their communities, and their past, present and future. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of this project along with Chef Nelson Larios of Lauriol Plaza, Chef Javier Romero of Taberna del Alabardero, Chef Ramon Martinez of Jaleo, Chef Ismar Reyes-Cruz of El Nopalito, Chef Beatriz Zuluaga of CentroNía, and Chef Tito Vargas of Oyamel. I talk about how the kitchen brings us Latinos together with our culture, heritage and traditions.
