Chichen Itza chef, one of Jonathan Gold's essential 99, cookbook signing and celebration at Mercado la Paloma

Sabores Yucatecos: A Culinary Tour of the Yucatán is the latest offering from celebrated Chef Gilberto Cetina, who gave us Chichen Itza restaurant in Mercado la Paloma near Exposition Park.

Long a Jonathan Gold favorite because of signature dishes like cochinita pibil, the restaurant has stepped its presentation and its offerings of late, perhaps because of the competition from a new Jonathan Gold favorite, Mo Chica, a Peruvain restaurant that has taken the Mercado restaurant incubator concept upscale.

With more than 140 recipes, easy-to-follow instructions and 120 photo, the book is authored by Cetina, long-standing community pillar and host of the radio show Canto Tropical Kathy Diaz, and Gilberto Cetina Jr.

It is said to be the first English-language cookbook on Yucatán's cuisine by a chef from the Yucatán. It has four and a half stars on Yelp!

Join Chef Cetina and Kathy and Gilberto Jr. Wednesday, March 14, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Chichen Itzá Restaurant (in Mercado La Paloma)
3655 S. Grand Ave.

There will be samples, refreshments and cookbooks.

Call 213-741-1075 for info.

This sublimely witty and provocative play, written and directed by Argentine playwright Arístides Vargas, was triply inspired by the classic novel “El Quixote” by Cervantes, “The Truth About Sancho Panza” by Franz Kafka, and testimonies from Chicho Vargas and other political prisoners held in Rawson Prison during Argentina’s “Dirty War” of the 1970s. Jesus Castaños Chima and Tony Durán reprise their roles as political prisoners who are allowed to interact with one another for one hour a week —…See More
