MemorEATS: Douglas Rodriguez

"My first memory of eating something was a negative experience. I ordered a Spanish tortilla omelet when I was traveling in Spain with my family. I asked for ketchup and the waiter brought me diluted tomato paste, and my father made me eat the omelet with it. It tasted horrible." –JBF Award Winner Douglas Rodriguez, Alma de Cuba, Philadelphia; Deseo at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, Scottsdale, AZ; and OLA at the Sanctuary Hotel, Miami Beach, FL
