Fiesta is the ultimate time of year to be a foodie! Lucky you if you’re in the Alamo City. I’m thrilled to bring you my current favs for recipes that’ll feed the fam and kick-start any celebration…
Springtime is the most spectacular time of the year in San Antonio. Goodtaste.tv linked with the always impressive Chef Manny Elizondo of Boudro’s/Zinc to get the goods on one of the most popular dishes that BOTH restaurants are serving up as we speak: duck carnitas.
Here in the state-of-the-art cooking facilities at Sysco Central Texas, Goodtaste linked with Executive Corporate Chef Lance Youngs of John Soules Foods for a quick lesson in an awesome product that’s agreeable across the board…fully-cooked, grilled chicken fajitas.
At Goodtaste.tv, we’re always on the hunt for new food trends. Avocado fries and chips have been a buzzworthy, culinary creation for some time now! Enjoy Panko crusted avocado with jalapeño dip made from roasted jalapeños, cilantro, and Kewpie mayonnaise. It’s a delicious side dish available now at Fat Bao — The FIRST to infiltrate Houston with an array of Asian flavors in a steamed bao (bun).
Howdy Houston! It’s no secret women love wine – but we also like to tailgate too! I got with Chef Anna of Cooking Connections at the H-E-B plus! at Bunker Hill for the inside scoop on healthy tailgating options that act as awesome alternatives to the usual suspects of heavy, fatty ‘man’ foods.
Just look at this radiant beet and avocado salad! The yet-to-be-named new restaurant by culinary whiz Chef Steven McHugh has its sights set on the Pearl Brewery — and is already delivering ahead of schedule with this beautiful winter salad. Take my word for it, it tastes as good as you’d imagine!
Being from the South, if there is one food I can’t do without, it’s Tex Mex! Certainly I’ve looked for ways to not have to eliminate it from my New Year’s diet. The iconic La Fonda Alamo Heights is making that concept super simple this year! Their new gluten friendly, low calorie menu is tailored to help you cut carbs without skimping out on flavor!
Serve it chilled for a steamy, Summer day or have it hot for that fiery flavor, Cooking Connections has a pre-cooked shrimp ceviche that’s ready in mere moments if you play your cards right
Say goodbye to summer with these delicious soups! These gourmet delights are fruity, fragrant and absolutely fabulous. Olivette at the Houstonian is our first stop…. Enjoy!
What a fun twist on traditional pizza! The best part about these pizzas is that you can toss on just about whatever you like to make them unique and all your own. H-E-B’s Cooking Connection Chef Elizabeth Hallier calls this pizza the ‘Hollywood Pizza’ because it’s so beautiful and light. It’s delicious too!
