In 2000 I discovered green chile in New Mexico and quite by accident started a specialty foods business making gourmet cooking sauces. Today I am president of New Mexico Chile Company
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with simple food and strive for simplicity with a gourmet flair.
My cooking triumphs
Creating and bottling the number one enchilada sauce in the state of New Mexico. It was a huge success to compete with generations of great cooks.
My cooking tragedies
Inviting a client to dinner, I made dirty rice, a cajon masterpiece. Unfortunately, my rice never got cooked and I served it hard. My client tried to eat it, but the crunch of rice between his teeth was audible around the table. Finally, after several glasses of wine, he started shooting rice pellets across the table. Good thing I had lots of wine!
