Barrio Cafe Chef to Whip Up Dishes for Latino Artists
Esparza's right-hand man, Chef Julio Mata, will demonstrate food preparation techniques as part of the Amigos del Arte membership event at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday, June 23, at the Arizona Latino Arts & Culture Center. For the "Sabor del Barrio Cafe" portion of the festivities, Mata will prepare two dishes on-site -- and if you're lucky, he might let you help out.
After the jump, find out which signature Barrio Cafe item Mata will serve up tomorrow.

The salad will be prepared prior to the event, but Mata is letting guests in on the secret of the guacamole by demonstrating the process from start to finish with the help of audience volunteers.
Tickets are $25, which includes tastings and membership to the Amigos del Arte community of artists and supporters of the arts community. Current members get in free.
