All Classes are taught by Sylvia Casares, a food scientist, chef and restaurateur. She is an engaging teacher who shares the history and traditions of each dish and spice. Born in Brownsville, Texas, she named her restaurant after her signature menu item, nineteen enchiladas. Each enchilada reflects a specific region of Texas, the Texas-Mexico border, or Mexico.As a food scientist, she learned that every short cut or substitution you make to a recipe will cost you flavor. And she is all about flavor! She has spent years perfecting her recipes, working hard to make each one a ten. She uses the best ingredients money can buy, so that when her customers dine at one of her restaurants, they are eating the very best Interior of Mexico, simple home-style Tex-Mex, or special mesquite grilled meats like Cabrito and Carne Asada.
