Podcast Interview with Taste Trekkers: A Taste of Oaxaca with Lola’s Cocina!

This past year has been a tour de force for me both personally and professionally. Within the span of 365 days, I became the first in my family to complete a dual master’s degree, I gave birth to my first little bun in the oven, Amado Ziv, and I launched Lola’s Cocina. Whew!

As I finally began to catch my breath, Seth Resler, founder of Taste Trekkers invited me to join his “Find Dining” podcast where I discussed the exciting developments in Mexico’s food tourism industry, my research on cooking schools in Oaxaca, the significance of mole, and a tidbit about Cinco de Mayo. Listen in and experience the Oaxaca they’re not talking about in travel magazines or on TV shows!
