Gustavo Arellano

Walking into Gustavo Arellano new book signing at the Fullerton public library in Fullerton California was a new experience for me. The book  titled  ‘Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America’ brought a full house to the Fullerton library which made me realized how the Mexican food industry has grown in the past years. As a student of Professor Arellano I am really impressed how Mr. Arellano took the time to go to different state and to try different Mexican cuisine.  Also, knowing professor Arellano I was not impressed how he kept the audience entertained with facts he found out about Mexican food in different parts of the US. He clearly has a strong fan base which made the evening very special. Also, at the end of the presentation he introduced all the people that have helped him become who he is now which is his family.
