When it comes to the Land of Enchantment’s defining cuisine and cocktails, Albuquerque has earned its place at the proverbial table. The city’s growing mixology scene, passionate farming community, and nationally recognized chefs offer a youthful enthusiasm that is a refreshing change of pace from the established culinary behemoth, Santa Fe. Watch our latest episode of Digging In, hosted by Natalie Bovis, in which we ask some top talent about the rising temperature in Duke City kitchens. Come with us as we visit David Gaspar de Alba of Artichoke Cafe, Mickey D’Amato of Brixens, and Daniel Mallot of Scalo.
