Innovative Mexican Chefs Cook Up a Fiesta!

Tanji Patton & Blanca Aldaco

Meet the talented chefs who are taking Tex-Mex up a notch at delicious Texas dining destinations on Goodtaste with Tanji! SET YOUR DVR for April 29-30!

Fonda San Miguel in Austin is widely considered to be the birthplace of classic regional Mexican cuisine…40 years and counting for this iconic spot alive with color in our state capital! Chef/Co-Owner Miguel Ravago has been there since the beginning, and has his hands in it all.

Aldaco's Pastel Tres Leches

Then, on down to San Antone for ‘La Maestra’ — my teacher — Blanca Aldaco and her restaurant for modern Mexican, Aldaco’s. Blanca is credited as being the first to bring Tres Leches Cake [above] to the Alamo City. It’s a recipe I’ve been attempting to get for more than a decade! We FINALLY have it for you this weekend… 😉

And, it’s all about the fajitas at The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation in Houston – a first not only for the city but the entirety of Texas too! Executive Chef Alex Padilla carries on “Mama” Ninfa Laurenzo’s legacy and shares a family tie of his own to this beloved Tex-Mex haven.
