Guerilla Guacamole Tactics

In Food on May 28, 2009 at 7:12 am


Yesterday I went to lunch at Loteria Hollywood with my friend/guac-foe Katie. We had pretty much agreed not to talk guac, but then Jimmy Shaw (chef/owner of Loteria) came over to say “hi” and asked us how our upcoming Guac Off was shaping up. Jimmy will be one of the judges at our guacamole contest, which propelled Katie into blatantly attempting to bribe him. Shameless. He also mentioned that he’d spoken to our co-competitor Carolynn earlier that day and that she had told him she was making a test run of guacamole. Seriously, Carolynn. Do you think I’m not going to find these things out???

But because I’m taking the moral high road, I will share here what Katie and I are both adopting as our strategy, a borderline OCD suggestion courtesy of Jimmy. We are going to buy avocados every day next week so that come next Saturday we will have an array of avocados in various stages of ripeness from which to choose. Obsessive? Si. But all is fair in guac and guerra…

  1. Oh, you are such a good sport. Do you mind telling me… what kind of avocados are you going to be buying? And from whom? Thank you so much!

  2. just looking at the photos, to see if you had one of the tinga, one of my life’s accomplishments, and just wanted to say… that was SO. MUCH. FUN!
