This Sunday, October 6, 2013 at 2PM, I will be moderating a panel on Mexican Spirits called Is Justin Timberlake Good for Tequila? The Gentrification of Agave, at the Patchwork Festival in Costa Mesa, the edible edition.

I'm honored to have dear friend, Chef Marcela Valladolid of CBS's American Baking Competition, and the Food Network's Mexican Made Easy representing her family tequila brand, Hacienda de la Flor; one of the best agave experts in the United States, bartender Raul Yrastorza of Las Perlas; and Cecilia Rios Murrieta and her Oaxacan mezcal label, La Niña del Mezcal.

Our discussion will discuss the future of agave based spirits as a rising global demand is putting pressures on the regions of tequila, mezcal, bacanora, sotol, and more. Will agave survive? Learn more about agave based spirits while sipping on the excellent tequila and mezcal from Valladolid and Murrieta, respectively.
