[email protected]: Jose Garces
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15-Oct 15), the Hispanic Googler Network and [email protected] were pleased to welcome Chef Jose Garces to Google's New York office to discuss his new book, "Latin Evolution". "At age 35, Chef Jose Garces has fast become one of the country's most distinguished chefs, a reputation that he solidified with the tremendous success of his first restaurant Amada, an authentic Andalusian tapas bar, which opened to rave reviews in Fall 2005. Called the "Latin Emeril" by one food critic for his wide smile and his educational approach to food, Garces, who the prestigious James Beard Foundation recently nominated for its "Best Chef Mid-Atlantic" award, has long been an ambassador of contemporary Latin cuisine, appearing regularly in the New York Times, Travel & Leisure, Esquire, Cooking Light, Restaurant Hospitality, Conde Nast Traveler, National Geographic Traveler, Philadelphia Magazine and Travel Channel's Epicurious TV. In the few short months since Tinto debuted, it has been featured in Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Wall Street Journal and Philadelphia Inquirer." This event took place on September 27, 2008.
