Chef Fernando Villagomez, who has transported the flavors of his native Michoacán and other regions of Mexico to LA with his three stalls at historic Grand Central Market (Villa Moreliana, La Tostadería, La Frutería) and Abbot Kinney eateries (Boca de Agua, La Tostadería), now introduces adventurous diners to a rare Mexican delicacy enjoyed since the time of the Aztecs. Mexico’s answer to caviar, escamoles are the larvae of a species of ants harvested from the roots of maguey plants in Central Mexico. Prized for their buttery, nutty flavor and scarcity, escamoles show up as a seasonal specialty on the menu of gourmet Mexico City restaurants in spring and summer. It’s taken more than eight centuries, but Angelenos will finally get to discover this taste treat during Los Angeles Times Food Bowl. Chef Fernando has been able to import a limited supply of this rarity for the following four-course tasting menu.
