A Mexican Chef Rocking Asheville!

What’s going on my big appetite friends? Are you ready for more great food here in Asheville? All right then! Because today I’m taking you to a place I drove by many times, and lucky me, one good day I decided to go in. First things first, I feel fortunate to know quite a bit about Mexican cuisine, and lucky us, here in Asheville we have lots of Mexican talent working in the kitchens of some of the best restaurants in town.

However, I have to tell you, I have NEVER BEFORE, met a Mexican Chef Rocking Asheville, the way Chef Enrique Pérez is doing it. Slowly, smoothly and quietly.

Things to do in Asheville

Making Martial Arts Latino Champions in Asheville

Not long ago, Chef John Atwater asked me to go with him to the farmers market to look for hot peppers, and produce for the salsas they make at Mamacita’s Taqueria, and Taco Temple.

Well, that was a few years ago. I remember that when we arrived at the Asheville’s Farmers Market, almost right away, I felt transported to México. The smell of tomatoes, hot peppers, cilantro, watermelons and the sight of Vanessa, a Mexican grandmother surrounded by 4 or 5 kids, made me feel like I had travelled in time.


Shiloh’s Historic African American Community In Asheville

Hello friends, I hope you are doing well, and enjoying the last days of summer. Ok, today I want to share with you all, my visit to the Shiloh Community in South Asheville, the oldest African American Community in our City.

This place has a beautiful garden with flowers, vegetables,stone oven, murals, amphitheater, and it is cared for, and kept by local residents.The best part is they are re-writing their history, while empowering youth with a variety of activities and workshops, while investing time in the place they call home.
