Simply the Best: Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen

Houston’s Sylvia Casares-Copeland, of Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen, was named one of the Top Ten Best Latino chefs/restaurants of the year by Siempre Mujer magazine.

Casares-Copeland is in good company. The rest of the list includes: Silvana Salcido Esparza, Barrio Café, Phoenix, AZ; Douglas Rodriguez, Ola at the Sanctuary, Miami Beach, FL; Luis Fernando Caamal, Colibri Mexican Bistro, San Francisco, CA; Priscilla Satkoff, Salpicon, Chicago, IL; Lydia Sharpe, Little Havana, New York, NY; Jose Andres, Jaleo, Washington, DC; Archie Mejias, Sabor Latin Bistro, North Bergen, NJ; Rocio Gomez, Amaranta, Canoga Park, CA; Dunia Borga y Taco Borga, La Duni Latin Café, Dallas, TX.

The honor should help sales of Casares-Copeland’s book/DVD Hot Tamales, a take-off of her popular cooking class. – Olivia Flores Alvarez
