Enrique Olvera is the chef of Mexico City’s Pujol, one of the fifty best restaurants in the world. Just a few weeks ago, he spoke at Gastronomika, in San Sebastian, Spain, representing Mexico and its “evolving and emerging” culinary scene. Below, the chef discusses how dining is changing in Mexico, how he gets criticized for not being “authentic” enough, and how chefs in his country can navigate not having the support of their government.
