There’s a beautiful ranch in West Texas producing an incredible lamb product you’ll find in some of the finest restaurants in San Antonio…Boudro’s and Zinc for starters! This all-natural lamb is produced locally at the Hudspeth River Ranch. Lamb seared to a golden brown, cooked in red wine and deglazed…a juicy shank with little to no fat!
This particular meeting was a real treat for me. I first met Sommelier Rajat Parr at RN74 in San Francisco — one of my very favorite restaurants anywhere. His book, Secrets of the Sommeliers, is an excellent guide for anyone with an interest in wine, no matter your experience level or familiarity.
Steak fans are in for a HUGE treat. One of the most highly acclaimed barbecue spots in all of Texas (maybe even the country) played host to an old fashioned charcoal cookout — with a culinary celebrity! None other than noted American culinary writer, TV host, and most recently novelist, Steven Raichlen. The best part? Goodtaste came away with a recipe…
This super fun dish that screams ‘fall’ is also incredibly healthy! Chef Belinda Dernier of H-E-B Cooking Connections made her Candy Corn Chowder for Goodtaste cameras: gluten free, dairy free and vegan friendly! Plus, it tastes great…it’s too bad we don’t have Smell-O-Vision!
Find your favorite fall wine today at H-E-B. In a season where heartier dishes take precedent, Ralph my ‘Wine Guy’ helped me select three wines to watch out for this month…two of which retail for under $10!
Experience true seasonality with this limited time special menu featuring Community Supported Agriculture at Francesca’s at Sunset. The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort is a breathtaking piece of property, and Francesca’s commands what could be the BEST views of San Antonio from its perch. It’s also known for its fresh, farm-to-table ingredients.
If you’re familiar with award-winning Mexican dishes and premium hand-crafted margaritas in South Texas, then no doubt you are familiar with Iron Cactus. Sysco kitchens played host to our recent rendezvous, as Corporate Executive Chef Jaime Chozet showed off the cooking process for two separate, yet equally popular, menu items: fancy Lobster Tacos and a house favorite, the Cactus’ Chile Relleno Rustico.
With four locations spread over the South East, South West, and North West sides of town, you are never more than a few minutes away from a great seafood meal in San Antonio. This Alamo City institution prides itself on making their seafood dishes in-house and cooked-to-order on a daily basis. J. Anthony’s caters to the working man — and the working man’s appetite.
The real “super bowl” this NFL season is in the kitchen! Chef Belinda of H-E-B Cooking Connections takes on tailgate appetites everywhere with a name that conjures up the most enticing of mental images…Salted Caramel Fantasy Nachos. Guests at your next get-together will be in full blitz mode to get the last one of these!
Primo picks continue at H-E-B — that means low, low prices on quality wines, definitely giving you the most bang for your buck! Some of the best wine values on the market are coming out of South America. And our Golden Rule to remind you of: Save 10% on six or more bottles — 1.5 liter bottles, even sparkling wines or those individual bottles already on-sale — daily at your neighborhood H-E-B!
Stroll along the vibrant San Antonio River Walk and you’re bound to come to Biga on the Banks, a premier fine dining restaurant with contemporary-regional cuisine you just can’t beat. The food is outstanding — and always highly acclaimed! Owner/Chef Bruce Auden invited Goodtaste in on the cooking process for a fun new Gulf Brown Shrimp sandwich.
Ever heard of ‘peanut butter powder?’ It’s incredible, and it’s one of the tasty tips that make these frozen banana pops from Chef Charlotte in H-E-B’s Cooking Connections so sensational.These are easy to make…a five minute fantasy in the kitchen. Your kiddos will also love them as an after-school snack. Heck, bring them in on the cooking process!
