#83 - Henry Pineda Follows the Flavors of Family

Family is everything, and many know that statement to be gospel. I myself am a firm believer in that those you surround yourself with and call family - blood-related or otherwise - help to shape your life. Chef/Owner Henry Pineda of Lola's by MFK in Anaheim, CA has had his career shaped by his family. He is now set to open a new location of his beloved Modern Filipino Kitchen, dedicated to, and inspired by his roots. We sit down to talk about how he nearly left the industry after a devastating 2020, his influences in the kitchen, and how he is incorporating the emerging NFT market into his restaurant.This is a special one.Enjoy!The Best Ceats Podcast brings unprecedented access to the Orange County hospitality industry each and every episode.
