Jesse Sandoval, Paella
Former drummer of indie-rock icons The Shins and current hatch green chile empresario Jesse Sandoval joins Rachel on this week’s YLM to discuss bringing New Mexico’s much-loved pepper to the masses, the band’s fallout with fans after “selling-out” in a McDonalds ad, and with which Golden Girl would Jesse most like to eat cheesecake.
We also learn about Jesse’s last meal by talking to 3rd-generation Valencian paella chef Perfecte Rocher (who LA Weekly called the best paella chef in Los Angeles), and we get the history of saffron – a key ingredient in the dish and one of the most expensive spices on Earth! All that and more on this episode of Your Last Meal!
