Where the (food) Magic Happens
Cook like a pro- or just watch the pros cook for you! The culinary scene in San Antonio has come a long way since The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) opened their third location in 2008. Chefs from all over the country come to San Antonio to fine tune their knife skills and learn to cook just about everything from to lamb chops to lady fingers. Professor Hinnerk von Bargen led me through a comical but informative hour long demonstration of crafting the perfect fajita. This struck me as odd considering he was native German- but when in Texas!
