What great news for San Antonio…not to mention Los Barrios and La Hacienda restaurants. Diana Barrios will whip up a couple of her wonderful culinary creations on the Today Show on May 4—segments that millions will see. Yes, TWO segments. Diana tells me the entire 4 hours of the Today Show will be broadcast from San Antonio. What a coup for our city! Obviously, our Convention and Visitors Bureau is due some cudos here too.
Diana says she has no idea what she’ll prepare when Matt Lauer hosts the segment. She’s still celebrating the great news. “I screamed when they called,” she said, “I was so excited.”
Diana tearfully told me she believes it’s also a sign her beautiful mother Viola, who passed away almost a year to the day Diana got this news, has God’s ear. “He knows this is a very difficult week for us, and this news about the Today Show certainly helps ease the pain.”
There’s even more good news for the Barrios’. Their recipes will be featured in the June issue of Martha Stewart Living. Life is good! (so is God!)
