THE MIGRANT CHEF The Life and Times of Lalo García

by | Read by Cindy Kay

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Cindy Kay has a pleasing voice and a keen sense of drama. A stylish narrator, she mimics languages well. All her skills are well displayed in this biography of Mexican chef Eduardo "Lalo" García, who heads one of the hemisphere's best restaurants, Maximo Bistrot, in Mexico City. The audiobook traces the twisty road of the celebrity chef from the time he came to the U.S. as a farm worker to his imprisonment and then deportation to his native Mexico. Along the way, Lalo, who had extraordinary natural talent, learned from some great chefs, Eric Repert of Le Bernardin fame among them. Today García runs Lalo!, Havre 77, and his flagship, Maximo, and is celebrated as an innovator and a supporter of farm-to-table cuisine, as well as traditional agriculture methods.
