September 17, 2015
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
“Should we eat the art?” During this evening’s dinner and conversation about Texas Mexican cuisine and art, the answer will be a firm “yes.”
Chef and author Adán Medrano presents insightful history and commentary from his award-winning book, “Truly Texas Mexican: A Native Culinary Heritage In Recipes.” He will also serve a sit-down dinner, a chef’s menu, featuring varied recipes from his book, including
•Pecan Smoked Trout with Yerbaniz-Chipotle Aioli
•Chile Ancho Albóndigas with Pan-Roasted Cactus Paddles
•Handmade Corn Sopes with Roasted Pinto Beans
The sit-down dinner will be paired with Texas wine, and proceed as a “dining/art experience” that explores the 10,000 year culinary history of the first inhabitants of Texas.
Medrano will discuss and demonstrate how the culinary arts represent an aesthetic practice that impacts identity, community, and the way that we make meaning in our lives. This delicious combination of history, art and dining celebrates Texas’ first cuisine.
