"For me, being awarded the Silver Molcajete is a great satisfaction, yet it is also a great commitment to continue working," said the cook, Blanca Estela, who received the prize from Lucila Molina de Merlos, who won the award in 2016.

The award ceremony was held at the Industrial Club where a meal was offered in honor of Vidales de Lemus consisting of Oaxacan Chilatole, prepared by gastronomy students of at CESSA University (Centro de Estudios Superiores San Ángel), tilapia in tomato stew by chef Guy Santoro, Stem leaf Chamorro, Vidales own recipe, and guava sweet stuffed buñuelos by chef Rodrigo Flores.

"We have to dignify us through cuisine, gastronomy is an art" Blanca Estela Vidales.

"In my career, it follows the day-to-day, the effort, keep looking for the best; because the recipes are already there, and life is already done. Mexico gives us many wonderful joys and products, thus we have to keep fighting to preserve what we already have and make it better," cook Blanca Estela Vidales concluded.
