Mexican chef to be guest at Chino Farms book signing in Rancho Santa Fe


The Good Earth/Great Chefs Series and the Chino Family Farm are hosting Mexico’s top chef, Enrique Olvera, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 18, for a signing of his first English cookbook, “Mexico From the Inside Out.”

Olvera is widely considered to be Mexico’s most celebrated chef. At 38, he was chosen in September to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from Diner’s Club International. He has also been named one of the “10 Next Chef Superstars” by Food & Wine, and Star Chef’s Congress named him one of the “Top 10 International Figures in World Gastronomy.” Besides the restaurants Pujol in Mexico City and Cosme in New York, Olvera owns three other restaurants in Mexico.

Guests can meet the chef at the signing — held at the Chino Farm, 6123 Calzada del Bosque in Rancho Santa Fe —have him sign a copy of his book and then shop for the same vegetables he’ll be using for a reception/cook-off at Galaxy Taco in La Jolla Shores with chef Trey Foshee that evening.
