Notes from the 2008 Southwest Foodservice Expo: Viva Mexico!
Lamb barbacoa. Vacuum packed. No refrigeration needed.
By far the most interesting food presentations were at the Mexico Pavilion with samples of coffee flavored with cinnamon, grasshoppers sauteed in butter and garlic, powdered avocado, mole from the state of Veracruz and heat-and-serve lamb barbacoa.
Maria Jose Perez demonstrates the uses for powdered avocado.
