There is a whole lot of stuff going on around here. First, I have been asked to do not one…but TWO cooking demonstrations at this year’s Nashville Home Show. Cooking demos are always so much fun for me, I really enjoy teaching people to cook a dish! The reps at the Nashville Home Show were kind enough to supply me with a few sets of VIP Passes to the show! I will be giving away two of the passes to One lucky winner through this post (details below).
This past Monday, I was invited along with other members from the Nashville Food Bloggers, of which I am now a proud member of (HAPPY DANCE!) to sample Cantina Laredo’s Valentine’s Day Menu. This also was my first time at the restaurant. Cantina Laredo is what I would like to call a “Modern” Mexican–style restaurant with a very vibrant and sophisticated atmosphere. They have 2 “Tres Course” Menus that are reasonably priced at $17.99 per person. On their regular dinner menu, they offer dishes like Enchiladas De Avocado: avocado and artichoke enchiladas with a tomatillo sauce over a bed of spinach; Enchiladas De CANGREjO: Lump crab enchiladas with spicy chili de arbol cream sauce on a bed of vinaigrette marinated vegetables; and one that I will have to try on my next visit – TACOS DE CARNITAS: Slow-roasted pork with chipotle wine sauce. YUM! I was able to meet both the General Manager, Matt Langston and the Executive Chef, Josh Santiago. They were both wonderful and very passionate about the restaurant and what it has to offer.
