TRES LECHES TEMPORARILY IN LIMITED SUPPLY + other unrelated news

If y’all don’t know what a tres leches is, READ HERE. That is, if you can read past the capitalized L’s. ::shrugs:: I was going through a phase.

For tres leches devotees, I have some potentially alarming news for you from our pastry chef, Beth Kellerhals:

We’re all set with tres leches for tomorrow. I’ll have 50 for the cakes and about 15 for Chego . . . hopefully that 15 will last for a few days for them.

I know, I know — first we get hit with the napkin-rationing, and now this! But, no fear, it’s just that after this current supply runs out, the presence of tres leches at both Chego and our trucks will be on vacation for about a week or so.

For people who don’t know the back story, our pastry chef makes desserts for Kogi, Chego, A Frame, Beechwood and also a few other independent projects. In the past 2 years, a 1-woman team has turned to 5, but, as you can imagine, it’s gotten a rittle crazy with the increase in demand.

So she just needs to reorganize a few things in terms of help and assistance and we’ll be all good.

In the meantime, we have enough to last today and possibly a little of tomorrow, so if you’re used to getting a regular dose of the tres leches, I’d recommend that you get your fix in as soon as you can manage.

IN OTHER COMPLETELY UNRELATED NEWS:

1) Apparently PBS got hacked.

AHAHAHAHA. Look at the headline: “TUPAC STILL ALIVE IN NEW ZEALAND.” AHAHAHAHA.

For the full story via BoingBoing, I’d recommend going HERE.

2) THAR’S A MUTANT PARAKEET LIVING IN NEW ZEALAND. And it’s kinda cute!

3) …and I just thought this docu-video on the Nortec Collective was really cool. ┬áThere’s definitely a little bit of Kogi soul living in the expression of their music. ┬áMusic/culture buffs, it’s something I’d recommend you to check out. For now, I’ll link to the video via screencaps, since it appears that the BBC isn’t too keen on having their videos embedded via WordPress.

HAPPY TUESDAY, Y’ALL!

Love and tacos,
Aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice

P.S. Chef Roy/Papi Chulo was sad and disheartened to learn that Tupac was not, in fact, alive and well in New Zealand.
