Return to La La Land: Art Is Back in California
"While other parts of the world of either open man museums or had sporadic lockdowns and reopenings cultural institutions in los angeles had remained firmly closed until this month. Now though most are welcoming visitors again in strictly controlled numbers and with familiar restrictions. Of course among the key. Attractions in town is the made in. La annual at the hammer museum and huntington library art museum and botanical gardens which has been stalled last summer. but he's only now gaining an audience. I spoke to jerry finkel regular contributors to the newspaper and the new york times about l. La's emergence from hibernation jewelry. Why is it. California has taken so long to open. Its museums yeah. It has taken a long time for california museums reopen museums in los angeles in particular. So there was a moment in the fall when the numbers got better in san francisco. Cova numbers got better in san francisco. San francisco museums reopen briefly. Two to four weeks and then had to close again. I don't know which is better opening for a month or not opening it all up and in the case of la that cove numbers have kept us in what they call the purple tier. Governor newsom has created a tier system an order for museums to reopen. They had to move out of the purple tier in that county. Meaning that counties metrics the number of cove infections per day Had to reach a certain level and we just didn't reach that level until recently so by by march we got the word that museums could reopen. That was exactly a year after they close like so many others across the world yep and so basically they opened Not all of them are even open yet so we have a case where lack my real and soon as it could. I think it was the first major museum here to reopen the hammer and the huntington reopened soon after that mocha is still closed. It's not opening until early. June the getty center is still closed. And they haven't given their reopening date yet. But we expect. I think even says on their website likely to be late may
Patrick Radden Keefe on Empire of Pain
"Patron kief joins us now. His new book is called empire of pain. the secret history of the sackler dynasty. Patrick thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me back. So let's start with a very basic question. In case people are not aware of the sackler family and why he would be writing about them with title like empire of pain. who are the sackler. So this sort of to waste answer that question until a few years ago what. The sackler name Generally to to the extent that people were aware of this family it was a very wealthy family. One of the wealthiest families in the united states with a branch in the uk in london and they were known chiefly for philanthropy right art museum wings. Hundreds of millions of dollars to art museums and universities and medical research and would very often put their name on these bequests. If you you know in new york city go to the metropolitan museum of art and there's the sackler wing And that was what they were known for. What was more mysterious. Was the source of this wealth and it has People have become more widely aware. Recently that That the bulk of this wealth comes from a company purdue pharma which produces the powerful painkiller oxycontin in this era in which the naming of things and the un naming of things mounting and the on mounting has become very active. Is it still the circle ring. In the metropolitan museum is sackler still emblazoned on all of these buildings and donated wings. Well it's very much in flux. So as i speak today it's still the sackler wing but the has actually announced today initially. They said they weren't taking any future. Donations from the soccer is because of the connection between the family and the crisis and then more recently. They've said that they are You know i think assessing is is the word whether or not the sackler wing will remain the sackler wing. Some institutions have started to take the name down so tufts university took down the sackler name from a series of buildings Because the students there this is at the medical school had said. I don't wanna go to class in a building named after this family and and get my medical education. They're more recently. New york university has done the same. The louvre in paris is taken down the sackler name. So there's a real question for many of these other institutions and there's dozens and dozens of them were the name still stands whether or not they'll keep it
Habima to Be Owned by Tel Aviv Municipality Following Financial Crisis
"Come to promised cast brought to you on t. v. One the voice of the city that this week announced that it is taking ownership of the national theatre habima and in so doing taking on one hundred million shekels in debt that habima has run up over the past years and in doing all this bringing to a happy conclusion a crisis that we first became aware of a year and a half ago in november twenty nineteen when a man named core case safron sued demanding that the company liquidated its assets and use the proceeds to pay the four million. It owed him for telemarketing services provided to habima by his company. Power dialing at the time the press made saffron out to be a grinch like figure shutting down the world's oldest hebrew theatre for something as unexhausted money filthy lucre. But the fact is you have to do a lot of power dialing. Run up a tab of four million shekels and it's like the old saying goes don't the cold call if you ain't got the windfall. It's the saying. I've heard a lot of people say that anyway. During the hearing it came out that the national theatre was much worse debt than anyone knew so much that that it was like an iceberg and the four million telemarketing chuckles. Were only the small little point. You see above the waterline. Which debt of course only got lots worse during the pandemic and of course the national government has an approved a budget since march twenty eighteen. Meaning that it would be complicated. And maybe even impossible for the treasury and ministry of culture in jerusalem to bail out the theater even if they were of a mind to do it and finally tel aviv mayor room the stepped up and negotiated a deal whereby the theater would become a municipal corporation like the art museum and the land of israel museum in the cinematheque and the camera theater. The director general of habima. A man named noam semel who was hired just over a year ago to steer the national theatre through its financial crisis said quote the tel aviv. Municipality is the mother and father that the bima has never had and quote
Pandemic Has Many Small Museums At Risk Of Closing Permanently
"Has devastated the art sector and hundreds of small museums are trying to keep from having to close forever. Here's NPR's Nina Kravinsky. One of the largest collections of paintings from Harlem. Renaissance artist Palmer C. Hayden is on the third floor of a Macy's and alleys. Crenshaw District We are pretty small, Museum Micro Museum, hyper local and community based museum. That's key should do, Miss Heath. The director of the African American Art Museum that's tucked away on the top floor of the department store. Their doors have been closed for over a year, even though the Macy's has been open for most of that time. Because it's classified is retail under Al is reopening plan, but the museum is an entertainment space. So that means no gift shop sales, no events and no visitors wandering up and leaving a donation while they're there. In the usual year that money fuels a lot of their programming, and we don't run very well on empty this past year, they've had to rely on grants and donations to keep from closing their doors for good. They're not

The economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic on Seattle
"Cast your mind back. I remember talking with you soon after the pandemic started. And you were describing looking out of your window and seeing hardly anybody on the street where what. He's seeing right now today. Well we have more activity than that there. There are some office. Workers are back that are back of course essential workers. There are things that are open today that we're not open a month ago. Museums like the seattle art museum and wing luke The pike place market has been just a great bright spot through all of this. They've never closed. They've had to adjust plenty. So that's a note of activity and usually it's a lot of tourists there. It's mostly locals that are coming from other neighborhoods in seattle downtown. So there's activity downtown. But we sure want more genders more activity but still i mean. The pandemic did take a major toll on downtown businesses. Can you give us a nutshell. Just what happened over the last year. Yes we all know. Downtowns are all about bringing people together and in a pandemic to stay apart for good reason so this pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on urban areas in our country and downtown seattle. Certainly and so. We've had one hundred sixty small businesses that have permanently closer restaurants and retailers office. Occupancy has been below twenty percent over the last couple of months of folks who are showing up at least a few days in their office during the week. Hotel occupancy is still hovering at twenty percent or below in some weeks and our major venues arts culture performance live music venues have have been shuttered for the most part throughout this period so this has been devastating economically to our downtown into downtown's across the country because when you're all about bringing people together a pandemic has significant impact on on how you function and that's what we've seen john. We are still dealing with this pandemic. we haven't turned a corner quite yet but it does seem that most adults who want a vaccine will be able to get one in the next few months. What could that mean for. The future of downtown really is a game changer and we. We have such a clear line of sight on the pace of vaccinations and win. A majority of adults in our community are going to be vaccinated because of the recent approval of the johnson and johnson vaccine. So it's going to allow office workers to return at some level here Early in the summer late spring. We're talking to employers and companies that are that are making those plans now and it's going allow for leisure travel to resume at higher levels throughout our country in seattle can compete really well for the domestic leisure travel business which we believe is going to be sort of the first type travel to return likely before business travel and likely before international travel. People are dying to get out. We want him to come to seattle so office. Workers in leisure travelers and the seattle. That maybe hasn't been downtown in the last year. We want to invite them back. There's plenty of that is open today and more to come. So that's where we're focused. Some folks are speculating. That this pandemic has forever changed. The nature of work and that many employees may simply work from home indefinitely which could mean way fewer people shopping and dining downtown. Are you worried about that potential shift. I do believe the office and work does get recalibrated but the office isn't going away by any means but it mean that some folks might work from home owners days a week. That's generally what the research in surveys. Both in our own community around the country are saying so. The office in the downtown still has an important role to play. When it comes to work and collaboration in shaping a company an organization's culture i do think it gets a re recalibrated doubt. So recalibrate it. If you've got fewer workers around who else possibly could be drawn down to the core to to kind of make up for the for the flow of energy that used to be there. We'll we're investing still record levels in in housing in downtown so more than seven thousand. Units of housing are currently under construction. Were connecting our city to downtown in ways that are going to help people to take a train from northgate in just a few months. That comes every couple of minutes right into downtown. So there's there's new ways to get downtown. We're significantly in housing. And then we're investing in generational infrastructure projects like the waterfront park and a great new arena seattle center. So there's going to be new things to see inexperienced downtown that weren't here prior to this pandemic and there's going to be lots of new businesses that come in into spaces that were vacated by businesses that had to close through this pandemic so this plenty to look forward to new investments new experiences that we're not here prior to this pandemic and we want to celebrate those in addition to everybody that made it through this pandemic and that's able to reopen. Is there a scenario where you might see that. The downtown doesn't recover. And what would that look like. And what would that mean. There's a lot at risk here. And i don't think we can take anything for granted and every great city has a great downtown. I haven't been to a great city without a thriving core in as a as a city here in seattle in a community. We we've made a big bet on a healthy thriving downtown. We've passed many levies to invest in families and education universal pre-k low income housing and a great park system that is betting on a healthy economically. Vital downtown so we have a lot at stake on what happens on these three square miles of land for the entire city and really the entire region. So we've got to get this writing. We can take nothing for granted.

"Moon guidebook author. Julia joins us now in an interview. We recorded prior to the kobe outbreak. One reason i haven't explored mexico as much as i'd like to. Maybe because i have a hard time pronouncing the pounds. But i think three towns near mexico city that really are like household words for anybody who loves exploring. Mexico are what those three towns. There's semi i n de guanajuato and kenneth at all and you could rent a car and being these towns. What a couple of hours. Yeah it's probably about two and a half to three hours to cut it that. Oh that's the closest san miguel. You're looking at probably about four hours to get there from mexico. City you can hop in a bus doesn't really nice comfortable bus lines or you could rent a car to. Would you do it. If you're flying into mexico city to get to these towns you know. I would take the bus. There are actually buses that come right out of the airport in mexico city to get at that oh and for their. It's you know striking distance to san miguel. So it's it's pretty easy to get around by bus. There's lots of great bus lines. They make it convenient so julie just so we can kind of get our bearings. Give me a quick thumbnail. Sketch of the three towns. Well going to what those starting with. That is a university town with a beautiful colonial central. San miguel day in day is a very laid-back. Small town that also has a very rich history and at the is a medium sized city where you'll get a mix of a lot of different things some business and a beautiful centro also plays really worth visiting julia. If you had to do your sightseeing before you started your actual bake ation. We'll be on your list. What are the top two or three things you gotta see in this town. Well i would start by wandering around the plazas and looking at all of the churches and baroque mansions throughout the central. One place worth visiting. Is the candidate that oh art museum. It's housed in an augustinian convent from the seventeenth century. So the building itself makes it worth a visit but they also have very interesting contemporary work by mexican artists other local artists. So i would definitely put that on my list in between to the market. The makoto crews would you find Artisanal things that come in from the countryside is at a farmers market. What would you be wondering through there. It's mostly a food marquette. And i really recommend visiting it because it gives you a very unique opportunity to wander through a really big bustling city market that again is not touristy at all so you're really getting a glimpse in mexican culture but you're not You know there's other people with their cameras out you feel like you're really getting an authentic experience there but it's also very clean and friendly and easy to navigate. It's not as overwhelming some of the big markets in mexico city say but it has a very similar atmosphere so i think it's a really cool place. I love visiting that. I mean in get at the dell in when you're there wandering through that market and just a little bit hungry. What are some of the regional. Specialties you look forward to trying well. One thing that is very typical of kenneth at o. Are gore dita's which is a big round. Corn cake flattened by hand. And then it's cooked on a griddle and it's usually stuffed with something like pork or she's no prickly pear cactus which is very popular to eat in whole area because the grow everywhere negro really the cactus pear do you call it Yeah and it's called the in mexico tuna. Yes and when you see tune on the menu. It's does not. Tuna fish actually refers to prickly pear fruit. Which is very popular especially in this region because these Cactuses grow everywhere. Wild

Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality
"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will

"A half a cup of that. It's GonNa add that I know it just. It smells like summer. It's so good so then you have a cup of sugar. Vanilla Extract One cup of vegetable oil. So is the vegetable instable oil replacing butter. Some cakes used butter some cakes US oil so I usually use canola oil for everything. 'cause vegetable the oil can be a mix and people are allergic to different things so canolas pretty straightforward but yeah you have quote unquote regular bakers. They use oil on their cake. So it's not that unconventional and then we have the two cups of Yogurt Okay so this is plain unsweetened Almond Milk Yogurt. And it's labeled dairy free. Where can people find this publix super easy? I'm a big fan of finding easy ingredients. My goal would the bakery when I started is to get more people to go vegan. I think the only way that we're going to get more people to go Vegan and for the planet right and for the animals is if people don't feel like they're giving something up you know if they feel like it's a huge effort in there having to give up something that they love. They're not GONNA don't do it so when I make my cakes when I make my recipes I try to find things that people will find it easy so now we have our wet mix and dry dry mix. So we're going to add the dry mix to the wet mix in third so you don't WanNa throw it all at once. 'CAUSE YOU WANNA make sure that really gets incorporated mixing mixing it in as we go. That's when you get the arm workout. So you can eat those calories later calories out calories right back in exactly. That's how I live my life. That smell is just so good. It smells just like you would expect baking lemon cake to smell. And that's the whole thing everything that I bake. I don't want anything to taste smell or feel like Vegan cake. I wanted to feel and taste and smell like a regular lemon cake because I was there you know. I wouldn't Vegan eight years ago in the half years ago and there was very not that many options really really and all the options that were out there were that dry tasteless cake and that was not going to work for me. I just knew that I couldn't live my life eating dry cake forever so I knew that I had to come up with the solution. So that's how this whole thing started. What made you decide to go vegan? Eight years ago I used to love meat. I used to love eating meat and cheese all of those things and then I watched food inc the documentary. humanitary had no idea what it was getting myself into and I just cried all the way like by the time. The movie ended an hour and a half half later. I'm in tears trying to see through the tears as I'm googling how to go Vegan and I was like that's it I'm done never again. There's no turning back so you were crying for what well. It was the first time I know it sounds silly. Everyone knows that your Burger comes from cal right but it wasn't until I actually saw those images of a cow. Oh being led to slaughter and I saw the fear in her eyes that I just connected the amount of cruelty that's involved in eating eating meat and I just couldn't erase that and all I could think about is that I was not going to be part of that anymore. Nobody was going to die because I needed a snack. So I just made a decision Asian that from then on I was gonna live cruelty. Free Life Okay. Well no tears in the cake batter. Please it's looking good. Is it about ready to go in the oven. So the last thing we want to do is that the poppy seeds a little bit of flare. So if you don't mind my asking what's your cultural background and was it difficult for for your family to accept that you had gone Vegan. I feel like a lot of people can make the change on their own but they run into trouble in social situations. We're family gatherings the holidays are coming up. So what was your experience with your family. So I'm from Brazil and it's a very meat heavy Brazilian diet diet right so f. I and I used to love the Brazilian steakhouses where they just keep bringing you meat endlessly. That was my favorite place to go so so when I decided to go vegan. Of course I wasn't going to go to those places anymore but I was still visiting my family in Brazil and my grandmother called it this weird phase under but then as you stick with it people become interested. And they're like so. What exactly do you eat when they see that? You're not eating. Salads is all the time then people realize oh wait. That's not what I thought. Veganism was then it becomes a different perspective which is part of the education process says and for people to understand that. It's not this crazy thing. No definitely not but that batter is looking crazy. Good I feel like I could just take a spoon okay. So you're spraying a BUNDT PAN and once you have it all in there then you put it in the oven at three fifty for an in our so it makes for a long time a right so three fifty four an hour and then through the magic of editing. We have one that you baked bright and early this morning. which is this perfect? Circular Golden Brown lemon cake with the poppy seeds flecked everywhere. I mean I could eat need it right now but you're not done. I mean it would still be delicious right now. Don't get me wrong but it can be even better. So we're going to put Dinna glaze a lemon glazing there so that's super easy we're just GONNA mix in some powdered sugar in a bowl and then we're going to slowly lowly poor some lemon juice in there to form a glaze. Now we're just GonNa pour it over the cake. Stop it right now. How it's just that her effects slow drizzle? It looks sore bought. And that's a compliment. You could serve this to company and you would be winning at life and don't tell them to begin until they've tasted it. That's what I do so what I did in my husband has. He's not Vegan. Okay so the glazes port in and then you could eat it or if you want to serve this you Kinda WanNa make it kind of a statement piece or kind of a centerpiece. ps You can add some flowers to it so pretty. I almost don't want eat it almost almost okay so now for the fun one part let slice into this bad boy. My mouth is watering hole. And it's so soft and crumbly look at that and then and I like to do this is just kind of reaching and get some more that glaze in there. Oh yeah because when you have a Bundt cake there's always that no-man's-land in the middle that little puddle. The little pool of glaze in the Middle Indefinitely. WanNa get in there. I need you to be my partner in crime here. Let's do this together. I will never if you insist I will eat cake. It's one of the my main food groups who the most important food group of the day. All right here. We go. That lemon glaze greets you from the beginning. Hello this is going to be delicious. And then it's so moist and Chewy. I guess that's the Vegan Yogurt. Yes so the Vegan Yogurt really just softens the whole thing up. Yeah just makes Super Moist. Poppy seeds I always bought. Were just kind of like arm candy but I really do taste a little bit of nuttiness you would not know. This is Vegan cake no way and that's the whole point like it should never taste like a Vegan cake. You should just taste like awesome cake for people who WanNa make awesome cake at home. What are some tips what are some substitutions? So there's not one specific thing that you can sell out in this instance. We subbed out Regular Regular Yogurt for Almond Milk Yogurt. And we put some cornstarch to glue it altogether question about eggs. It would be hard for people to believe that you can make a cake. Take this delicious without eggs. Where can we start to look for a substitution eggs? Some people like subbing for applesauce loss or a banana. You can do. What's called a Chia egg which is just chia seeds and water? They get if you mix them. They get that kind kind of runny texture. I personally don't like doing that. I prefer to just about ingredients and change the whole formula. Okay where are you on on. Aqua faubus isn't that the sort of juice that's in the can of chickpeas yes which sounds not delicious at all but it's magic whenever people ask me about being baking. I'm like Vegan. Baking is magic because you can turn chickpea water into meringue and Mousse. I mean how crazy is that and to watch it happen you put in the MIC. Sorry new add sugar and it just transforms into meringue. And it's absolutely amazing. I do all my macaroni with Aqua fiber marshmallow. I do a s'mores cupcake. The topping is all over and people are their minds are blown. When I tell them what it is I can't believe it? What about butter so there are vegan substitutes for butter? I I like using Earth Balance and again you can find that public it can find it at any grocery store. It tastes just like the real thing. But it's made with vegetable oils while Natalia Lima. This was absolutely delicious. Best of luck with the end of the challenge. Thank you so much. Thank you for having me.
