6th Annual Feria de los Moles Attains World Class Status with Serious Mole Masters from Puebla, Tlaxcala, and Guerrero to Complement our Local Pueblan and Oaxacan Mole Scene
This Sunday, October 6th, the 6th Annual Feria de Los Moles will take place at Olvera Street from 10am-7pm. The event is free to the public, will have live music, and will feature dozens of booths serving mole from Puebla, Oaxaca, Tlaxcala, and Guerrero along with other foods from our local Oaxacan and Pueblan communities.
Mole poblano at El Mural de Los Poblanos in Puebla
This is the largest Latin-American food festival in the United States, and this year they outdid themselves by bringing the world famous Los Murales de los Poblanos direct from Puebla to serve their mole poblano, and chiles en nogada among other of the restaurant's signature dishes. This is reason alone to go!
If that weren't enough, they are featuring mole masters from the state of Tlaxcala serving mole prieto and mole rojo; from one of my favorite mole cultures, the state of Guerrero will present mole verde, mole rojo, and mole tipo Guerrerense.
Understand that every state of Mexico has moles, not just Puebla and Oaxaca as many cookbook uthors and non-Latino food personalities would have you believe. You will be amazed at the new flavors you'll experience here from the regional chiles used to make the provincial mole. This is getting serious!
From our amazing local Pueblans, there will be the archetypal mole poblano, mole poblano almendrado, pipian verde, pipian rojo, chiles en nogada, mole de Olla, mixiotes de carnero, tamales de Moles, and cemitas de mole.
The Oaxacans will be showing off their mole negro, coloradito, mole verde, and tlayudas drenched with mole negro.
This is the biggest Latino food festival in the U.S. featuring one of Mexico's greatest dishes from the best in L.A. and Mexico. This is essential eating my friends--see you in line at El Mural!!!
