American Bounty Summer Series: Southwestern Cuisine with Edgar Rico, CIA ’11

Date: September 24

Edgar Rico—2022 James Beard Award winner for Best Emerging Chef and owner/chef at Nixta Taqueria in Austin, TX—and co-owner Sara Mardanbigi join us for an adventure through the cuisine and culture of the southwest. We’re throwing a masa party and you’re invited!

Hailing from Austin, TX, Nixta is not a typical taquería. It treads a line between the super-traditional (they make their own masa and tortillas using heirloom corn from Mexico) and the unconventional (you don’t see many taquerias where duck confit stands in for carnitas). Edgar and Sara share their culture with others every day at Nixta through their food, and now they’re bringing it to Copia for a VIP dinner in the garden with live Colombian cumbia. You’ll also have the chance to take a masterclass in masa with a hands-on class or special demonstration. Plus, learn about Texas wines, make your own tepache, and take a cocktail class.
