And his cooking reflects that too. “I’m really inspired by the country with its wide-ranging and high potential culinary assets,” says Olvera who celebrates the diversity of top quality Mexican cuisine at his Pujol restaurant in Mexico City.
But he does not lose sight of the bigger picture and combines both traditional and modern methods with a dose of his own creativity. Some of the unique ingredients such as black sapote and escamol and typical regional spices such as white recado transform Enrique Olvera’s sophisticated menus into a voyage of discovery through the culinary heritage of Mexico. The San Pellegrino list of the world’s best restaurants ranked the Pujol in 36th place in 2012. Enrique Olvera enjoys great popularity in his homeland thanks to his own cooking show and his appearance in the TV documentary “Diario de un cocinero”.
