This is a virtual event
Before Chef Aarón Sánchez rose to fame on shows like MasterChef and Chopped, he was a restless Mexican American son in El Paso, Texas, raised by a fiercely determined and talented woman who was a successful chef and restaurateur in her own right—she is credited with bringing Mexican cuisine to the New York City dining scene. Sánchez delves into his formative years with remarkable candor, injecting his story with adrenaline and revealing how he fell in love with cooking and started a career in the fast-paced culinary world.
This Artful Feastings event includes a demonstration by Chef Sánchez on how to make the best guacamole, as well as a short curatorial talk by Dr. Mark A. Castro, The Jorge Baldor Curator of Latin American Art, about thematically related works of art in the DMA’s collection.
"Aarón’s journey is an absolute page-turner, with gritty stories and hilarious anecdotes.” —Gordon Ramsay
