Enrique Olvera on Rotten Fried Bananas

Enrique Olvera is a chef who runs the Pujol restaurant in Mexico city.       

Speaking at Mad Food Camp 2012, Olvera discussed his work at the Pujol restaurant and welcomed on stage an American journalist who has visited him at least 20 times in the last year.

He discussed Mexican cuisine and how it's developed over the past few years, the rich culinary heritage in Mexico and how this heritage is being expressed in food throughout the country.

It's an interesting look at the rise of Mexican cuisine and an insight into the work of Olvera and some of the thought process behind his emotional cuisine. Using two memories Olvera creates two dishes using rotten fried bananas.
