cobaya experiment #81 - Cobaya Amarilla with Chefs Santiago Gomez and Carlos Garcia

Cobaya Amarilla with Santiago Gomez and Carlos Garcia

Another experiment successfully completed! This time, our chefs were Santiago Gomez of Cantina La Veinte and Tacology, and Carlos Garcia of Obra - but we weren't at any of their restaurants. We were at La Casa Amarilla, Santaigo and his wife Camila's home, where they hosted thirty of us in their back yard while Santiago and Carlos cooked at a wood and charcoal fired open kitchen. It was a perfect night for it and a great dinner. You can read a more detailed recap at Food For Thought, and see more pictures in this Cobaya Amarilla flickr set.

Here's what we had (with links to pictures):

(vuelve a la vida with tostada and grilled shishito)

(heirloom tomatoes, radishes, basil, chicharrones)

(vegetable paella)

4. Los Vegetales

(roasted lamb leg with salt-roasted potatoes)

(beet ice cream sandwich with chocolate sauce)

A big thank you to Chefs Santiago Gomez and Carlos Garcia, to Camila Basmagi, to all of their crew helping out for the evening, and most of all, to the guinea pigs whose interest and support make these events possible. And a side note: we encourage everyone to check out and support the non-profit that Santaigo and Camila formed, and which Carlos actively supports – Recipes for Change – which works to provide nourishment to local at-risk communities. Thanks and happy new year, all.
