With Plantas, Alexa Soto elegantly pays homage to Mexico’s storied legacy of plant-based cooking while deftly adapting its soulful repertoire to modern times. I may still be a card-carrying carnivore, sure, but I now find myself craving dishes like her mole negro with roasted oyster mushrooms even more than my beloved carne asada. 

 – Jorge Gaviria, James Beard Award-winning author of MASA
