Wow, so this is really happening. After five years of running my mouth about this, I’ll be facing off against some truly formidable competitors in a little over a month for the title of Best Guacamole. A taste of the competition: My friend Katie is ruthless. Let’s just say she beats boys at sports, handily. And Katie being Katie has already begun sourcing avocados. Like I’m not onto her… Carolynn has a James Beard Award under her belt and, oh yeah, she writes cookbooks with Nancy Silverton. And my friend Oscar launched the much loved, and much missed, magazine Tu Ciudad. Basically I’m up against a bunch of slackers. It’s time to get my head in the game.
Stylistically, what’s your favorite guac and why?
