Show 56, January 11, 2013: Jimmy Shaw, Founder and Executive Chef, Loteria! Grill Continues…

Two Loteria! Grills will be coming soon to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX.)

Torta CompanyChef Jimmy provides us with the rich history of the Mexican sandwich and what is correct as far as bread is concerned. The bread needs to be crunchy on the outside and pillowy soft inside.

Torta Company will offer both traditional and contemporary sandwich variations. There will definitely be appealing vegetarian options, too, including a wild mushroom tinga.

Look for pulled pork, batter-fried snapper in a Veracruz tomato sauce, and turkey in mole. Also on the menu will be Chef Jimmy’s clever spin on a tuna torta.
