Reviewing Rivera: Three Millennia of Latin Food Conexiones

December 7, 2012 No comments

We recently had the opportunity to enjoy the tasting menu at Rivera in Los Angeles.  The menu was entitled:  Three Millennia of Latin Food Conexiones.

Chef John Rivera Sediar grew up in Santa Fe, NM, but combines the flavors and cooking techniques he learned in Mexico, Spain, Portugal and South America.  The tasting menu provided a great way to experience this mixture of cultures, all beautifully presented with a special touch of stenciled decorations on each plate.  The visual review of our experience is captured below.  Click on the first image to see the slideshow that follows.  We enjoyed all the courses with the exception of the sweetbreads…but that’s just because we don’t like the textures of sweetbreads…must be an acquired taste.
