Gustavo Arellano in LA Times: For over 137 years, no newspaper has covered Mexican food better than the L.A. Times


Taco editor? No need here. It’s self-serving and haughty to assert that no American news service has championed Mexican food better than the Los Angeles Times, but it’s the truth.

Take it from the guy who wrote the book on Mexican food in the United States: me. But even I didn’t know the full scope of The Times’ coverage until I joined the paper and spelunked into the archives.

A bit jealous of Texas Monthly?
Peas in guacamole is pretty good, as an aside.
Cool article otherwise.
