Rebecca’s favorite food has been Mexican for as long as she can remember. It all started with trips to visit family in Texas where she was introduced to Tex Mex cuisine.
Although you might not think the suburbs of New York City (where she grew up) would be a good place to find authentic Mexican food, there was indeed an excellent Mexican restaurant in her home town. It was her restaurant of choice for birthday dinners or any special occasion. Invariably, her favorite part of the meal was guacamole. The waiters brought out all of the ingredients and made it in front of the table.
The show was half the fun, but eating it was definitely the other half! She took mental notes and quickly began to imitate what she had seen.
From there she went to school in California and became very familiar with California Mexican food, furthering her love for the cuisine and perfecting her guacamole. She can now whip some up in record time, just like the waiters she watched as a child.
