Mmmmmmmm Me Gusta the Mmm Me Gusta Cooking Show

SoCal cooking never looked so good. Meet Claudia Yuskoff, head chef and host of Mmm Me Gusta. She may describe it as “a little cooking show,” but her recipes are anything but small. From the god-like, Quail in Rose Petal Sauce, to the libacious, Cazadores Margaritas, Claudia cooks up rich Mexican cuisine sure to tingle your taste buds.

But don’t just take it from us, take a moment to get to know Claudia for yourself with this week’s Hungry Nation: Meet & Eat. For many Americans, the recession was a very low point in their lives. Claudia was among the unfortunate to lose their jobs, but she didn’t just make lemonade from the situation – she made a whole cooking show! Unemployment drove her to seek solace in the kitchen, and it was there Mmm Me Gusta was born.

Sipping on Horchata, her favorite childhood drink, Claudia talks about her experiences so far and shows off the source of her inspiration. If her recipes aren’t enough to make you drool, her gorgeous California kitchen sure will! In fact, may we suggest investing in a bib before you watch her videos? Your wardrobe will thank you. So devoted is she to using fresh, organic ingredients that she actually grows many of them in her garden. We can’t wait to see what she whips up with those watermelons. Seriously, we can’t wait. Claudia, if you’re reading this: Spoilers Welcome.
