Jorge Dugal migrated from Guatemala to the United States at the age of 20. Dugal started off as a dishwasher and moved his way up to kitchen manager—an indispensable role that he holds now at one of Los Angeles’s most revered restaurant, Providence. Watch episode one of Migrant Kitchen to see Dugal re-interpret his grandmother’s recipe for chirmol, a fire-roasted tomato and chili based salsa, that finds a modern home at Providence.
