Aficionados Speakers Series: BL1
Wednesday, Sept. 6, noon

“Before and Beyond Tex-Mex: History and Flavor Profile of Texas Mexican Food” Adán Medrano presents the 10,000-year culinary history of the indigenous peoples of Texas, the ancestors of today’s Mexican American community. The term, “Texas Mexican Food,” is described as a type of casero, home-cooking, that developed from 900 CE to the present in central and south Texas. Not to be confused with the recent Tex-Mex food served in restaurants, Texas Mexican food is an artful culinary practice of the Southwest that illuminates the role that cuisine plays in identity and community.
