Come and meet celebrity Latin cuisine expert and award-winning cookbook author Maricel Presilla at a jazzy and tasty event, including book signing, from 5-8 p.m. Oct. 6 at NAO, at Pearl.
In addition to meeting this impressive culinary historian, you’ll be able to enjoy Latin jazz from San Antonio Country Club Chef Nelson Milan along with his all-chef ensemble who will be joined by celebrity artist Carla Veliz.
Geronimo Lopez-Monascal, executive chef at NAO, is planning an array of tapas to serve, and there will be cocktails as well from the drink masters at NAO — all inspired by Presilla’s book.
