Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College will host a presentation by Lois Rudnick, “La Fabulosa Fabiola (Cabeza de Baca): the First Lady of New Mexican Cuisine,” at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the center’s Lyceum Room 120.
Fabiola Cabeza de Baca published two of the earliest cookbooks about New Mexico cuisine, touting the health of the land-based diet, and is credited with introducing the New Mexico chile into American cooking.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking on campus is free during summer months.
