The Latin Gourmet Awards recognized several outstanding Latino chefs in Dallas in October, and you might recognize one of them.
Laura Sanchez, the owner of Oak Cliff’s La Calle Doce and El Ranchito, was awarded the entrepreneur award.
“Her love for the restaurant industry is apparent and shines through in her business,” a media release states. “Sanchez has made her restaurants a family business rather than a one-woman show. She attributes a lot of her success to the support and love of her tight-knit family. La Calle Doce and El Ranchito have been serving Dallas northern Mexican cuisine for over 30 years and are showing no signs of slowing down.”
The Latino Gourmet awards also recognized chef Ingrid Hoffmann, the host of Simply Delicioso and Delicioso, with the Honorary Award; chef Alfredo Oropeza with the International Award; they recognized chef James Tahhan with the National Chef Award; and Chef Antonio Marquez with the DFW Local Chef Award.
