The James Beard Foundation is thrilled to announce that JBF Greens—events for food lovers under 40—is expanding nationally! This series will highlight delicious food and drink across the country, while showcasing chefs and operators making meaningful change within their communities. For the first-ever Greens Los Angeles event, JBF is shining a spotlight on the recipient of the 2015 America’s Classic Award winner: Guelaguetza.
Founded by Fernando Lopez and Maria de Jesus in 1994, Guelaguetza is now run by their children: Bricia Lopez, Paulina Lopez-Velazquez, and Fernando Lopez Jr. Over the course of nearly 30 years, the Lopez family has propelled Oaxacan cuisine to the forefront of America’s culinary conversation and advocated for Oaxacan culture in Los Angeles.
For the occasion, the talented team at Guelaguetza will prepare a vibrant family-style feast that highlights their family recipes and reflects the richness of Oaxacan traditions.
*70% of your ticket price will go directly to the host chef to support their business while 30% will go towards the Foundation’s national programming that is rooted in advocacy, racial equity, sustainability, and women’s leadership for the culinary industry.
All reservations are non-refundable and must be made in advance. Should the event(s) be cancelled due to any unforeseen circumstances, including COVID-19, The James Beard Foundation will offer options including ticket exchanges, use of tickets for future events, and option to donate tickets.
