On this week's show Aarón and Zarela are thrilled to welcome their longtime friend Stephan Pyles to discuss all things Tex-Mex and Southwestern Cuisine. Stephan is a 5th generation Texan and a founding father of Southwestern Cuisine, who created 23 restaurants in 6 cities over more than three decades of cooking.
Stephan and Zarela have known each other since the earliest days of Zarela's career, and they recently traveled to Oaxaca together. We hear all about the most surprising meals from their trip, and then they regale us with some older, personal highlights of their time spent with Zarela's mother; from careening through L.A. traffic to entertaining together at Stephan's home.
Plus, they track the evolution of Tex-Mex and modern Texan cuisine, and have a spirited discussion regarding the invention of the burrito.
