Food tips you can trust

 

Tex Mex cuisine

Similar names

Many of its dishes share the names with those in the Southwestern cuisine galaxy.

Origin

The classic "Tex Mex" cuisine did not get its moniker until several decades ago. However, the food style existed before the Mexican land became part of the United States in 1845. It is simple, honest food, reflecting the cooking of early ranchers and farmers in the semi-arid lands.

Tex Mex restaurants

By the mid 1950s, many restaurants of limited culinary skills opened "Tex Mex" restaurants" in Texas and well beyond. Their product was so bad that the cuisine gained an unjustified negative image among food connoisseurs.

New York ethnic cuisine

Melting pot

The city is unquestionably the culinary melting pot of the world. It is the residence of many immigrant chefs and home cooks who remain proudly loyal to their homeland's culinary heritage.
