Simplicity and good ingredients. That’s the secret to good food anytime according to Joe Cosniac, owner of the legendary Paesanos in Alamo Heights. I couldn’t agree more! There is a sort of magic that lingers in his kitchen…everything always comes together like clockwork!
‘Tis the season to give…and by that I mean shop! San Antonio, Houston and the surrounding Hill Country have some wonderfully practical destinations for finding good deals on all of the good stuff. It truly is more rewarding to give than to receive, BUT it’s pretty darn cool when you receive a gift that you can enjoy right then and there – something delicious!
Thanksgiving and pie go hand in hand…or should I say PIES! Part of the fun of the festive meal is tasting more than one delicious pie. I’ve got some great ideas to make your desserts devine–the best from some of your favorite chefs.
Paesanos 1604 in San Antonio has long set a standard of excellence for gourmet dining in the Alamo City. And speaking of standards, Chef Clark McDaniel – THE Chef Clark of Clark’s Seasoning found in local retailers – was on hand for the roll-out of Paesanos new ‘cool weather’ food lineup!
Ever tried Oaxacan Creamed Corn…Mmmm, it’s delicious. Rich, creamy and packed with flavor. Let’s face it: When it comes the Thanksgiving Day meal, it’s all about the sides! Turkey is turkey, but the sides can really make your meal shine!
Eva Longoria’s ties to Texas are big and bright, and the Desperate Housewives star was indeed shining this past Saturday night at her annual celebrity poker gala in San Antonio. The Eva Longoria Celebrity Casino Night was a HUGE success, and benefited Eva’s Heroes, a charitable organization co-founded by the actress herself, as well as Christiane Perkins-Garcia.

But, I have to tell you one of the most memorable I’ve attended was at Paesanos 1604. Chef Clark McDaniel pulls no stops at his events. The food is over the top good.
He’s hosting another wine pairing dinner, this one [...]
