Something else I get asked a lot is what is it like to be an aspiring Chef in Texas? I think most people who don’t live in Texas think only cowboys live here. Well, there really are some actual cowboys here (which is totally cool!) but there are all kinds of people here. And where there are all kinds of people, there are all kinds of food!
Texas is a great place to live if you want to become a Chef for many reasons. First of all, I know all about Tex Mex and BBQ. That’s enough to make a great meal for your family. But I also get to experience other types of dishes. For example, within just a couple of miles of my house, there is a Vietnamese restaurant, Asian Fusion restaurant, Italian restaurant and Indian restaurant. It’s a great place to live if you like to try other foods. So far I’ve learned how to cook a few Indian dishes which is something many kids in other cities may not have even tried!
I’ve learned that being adventurous in restaurants as well as in my own kitchen has its rewards. My go to will always be Tex Mex Fusion but I love the choices we have here… it’s not just beans on the campfire.
