Angie hails from Monterrey, a large, industrial city right near the Mexico/US border. Her love of cooking developed at a young age since she and her two siblings often helped their busy, working mom in the kitchen. At 15, Angie moved to New York City to attend high school. During these early years in the city, she started working as a bartender at a Mexican restaurant, where, of course, she also helped out in the kitchen as well.
I felt very comfortable in Angie's home, and she was very welcoming. I truly believed her when she said we were welcome back any time. She was also a great cooking teacher! Explaining each part, and adding various facts and tidbits as the night went on. It was evident how much she equated food and love. And everything tasted AMAAAAAAAAZIIIINNNGGGG.”
