As it turns out, those cupcakes were baked with avocado. And those friendly folks he was speaking to were with Faye Clack on behalf of avocado growers. Guess what-- they are planning an event with Chef Juan on September 16th, Mexican Independence Day, At Union Station between 6-9am (early morning commuters take note!) there will be good things to eat and a chance to win 20, 000 avocados!
That's a fabulous prize... but you may wonder: what if they all ripen at once?
Ah ha, attend this event and learn the trick for ripening your avocados in a timely manner, and other tips and info. And did I mention there will be food? I suspect a certain green fruit (yes it's a fruit!) will be featured.
