Oaxaca Cookbook + Pantry Essentials Gift Pack

Guelaguetza’s acclaimed cookbook, OAXACA, is the perfect addition to any cookbook collection! Along with Oaxacan chocolate, Guelaguetza’s signature black mole paste, heirloom Oaxacan black beans, and Oaxacan Pasilla chiles, this makes for the ideal gift for that foodie in your life.

Ask anyone in Los Angeles where they go for an authentic taste of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, and there’s a very good chance that they’ll point you towards Guelaguetza. Founded by husband and wife Fernando Lopez and Maria Monterrubio in 1994, this low-key Mexican restaurant is renowned as LA’s ambassador to Oaxacan cuisine, largely thanks to its iconic moles. Guelaguetza is today run by Fernando and Maria’s children, Paulina, Fernando Jr., Elizabeth, and Bricia. They’re carrying on the tradition of honoring their family’s recipes, which over the years have been hailed by everyone from the LA Times’ Jonathan Gold (who named the restaurant one of LA’s 101 most essential) to the James Beard Foundation, which named it an American Classic.
