Foodies will need to mark their calendars for Friday, September 6, 2019 for an exclusive kitchen takeover by Chef Edgar Nuñez at the Taft-Díaz restaurant in El Paso’s boutique hotel, Stanton House.
Without having to make a trip south of the border, El Paso food fanatics can enjoy Nuñez’s contemporary Mexican cuisine in an elegant and lavish setting, during the evening hosted by Taft-Díaz’s very own Chef Oscar Herrera.
Chef Nuñez’s approach to Mexican cuisine has given his restaurant, Sud 777, a reputable name in Mexico City, ranking #11 on the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
Nuñez is also a member of the renowned Academie Culinaire de France, as well as the Colectivo Mexicano de Cocina A.C., an association of chefs in Mexico City seeking to promote dialogue between professionals in the food industry.
As an emerging, young and talented Executive Chef and Director in Mexico City’s exciting culinary scene, Nuñez brings original flavors and concepts with his ‘Mexican Vegetable Cuisine’ that are bound to leave guests with a sensory experience of a lifetime.
Nuñez first inherited his taste for vegetables from his mother at an early age that has become the guiding principle for his culinary approach to Mexican cuisine. Specifically, his simple approach seeks to explore the infinite possibilities of garden-fresh vegetables, the chinampa or “floating garden” agriculture invented by the Aztecs, and fish and shellfish from various regions across Mexico.
