Chef Anastacia Quiñones, on behalf of José, will be cooking at the James Beard House on Friday, March 13 in New York. Under the talented hand of Chef AQ, she and her culinary team will be preparing a 6-course meal that will celebrate the many regions of Mexico, such as Jalisco, Oaxaca and Nuevo León. Her menu will be a play on her favorite ingredient, masa, and be notably titled “Masa Madness.” To highlight her regionally influenced flavors, each dish will be paired with a favorite tequila, a James Beard first.
A night at the James Beard House is where some of the most passionate and legendary Chefs world over have prepared meals for their guests. For the guests that are lucky enough to snag a ticket before it sells out, they will be able to immerse into a culinary experience like no other. For those of us that can’t make the trip, José will be hosting our very own “Night at the James Beard House” as our February Pop Up. More details to come.
Chef AQ says, “I had the honor of cooking at the James Beard House while working at Komali with Chef Abraham Salum. I could almost feel the presence of all the talent that has come before me. I never thought I would have the opportunity to come back with my own team and menu. I wholeheartedly believe in the Beards House mission in supporting continuing education and am looking forward to helping that effort and cause.”
