Alex talks about growing up in a Argentinian and Jewish household in Minneapolis, and how that developed her food tastes.

Tune in and learn more about Alex's restaurants and Spanish cooking! This program has been sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

"I have an affinity for [Spanish food]...I just understand it intuitively. I think that makes it easy to fall in love with something when you find you have a real connection to it that flows easily."

"Txikito is a Basque restaurant, and it's really a love letter to my husband and what he left behind."

-- Alex Raij on U Look Hungry
