BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - If you have an appetite for traditional Latino dishes, the 16th annual Latino Food Festival and menudo cook-off is the place to be on Sunday.
"It tastes better than what it sounds," said Blodgie Rodriguez with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. "It's tripe, hominy, chili and other various spices that people use when they're making their menudo."
There will be over 60 different types of menudo for people to taste, and chefs from all over Kern County have come to not only win the top recipes but also to raise awareness of local Hispanic businesses.
The festival held every year by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce hopes to bring in funds for programs that will help local businesses succeed.
Patrons can also expect to listen to traditional Spanish music and even participate in a Jalapeño-eating contest.
The 16th annual Latino Food Festival and Menudo Cook-Off will be held on Sunday, June 1, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Kern County Fair grounds.. Tickets are $15 at the door and $10 in advance. Kids under the age of 5 get in free.
