What would you ask Jose Garces?

He'll discuss his new book "The Latin Road Home" at the Free Library on Monday.

What would you ask Jose Garces?


Jose Garces has come a long way since he opened Amada in 2005.

Won a James Beard Award. Won a spot on Iron Chef.

Opened 14 more restaurants in five cities, plus a taco truck. And a farm in Bucks County. And cinched a catering contract at the Kimmel Center, where he will open a boutique restaurant, Volver, where he himself will cook. And he and his wife, Beatriz, launched a family foundation.

And now, he's written a second book. The Latin Road Home is being described as a prequel to his first book, 2008's Latin Evolution, in that Garces travels to the five Spanish-speaking countries that shaped him.

Garces will discuss this book on stage with me at the Free Library of Philadelphia's central library at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15. It's free.

I have questions of my own. I'm turning to you: If you could ask Jose Garces anything, what would it be? Reply in the comments.
