East Culinary Studio Austin

2100 Robert Browning St.

Austin, Texas. 78723.


Join Cooking Channel's Ali Khan, along with Nacho Aguirre and Susana Mijares of Food Network's Spring Baking Championship for a Tex Mex twist on the classic Thanksgiving dinner!


This live cooking demo includes a three-course meal with drink pairings. The menu features several Mexican influenced takes on Turkey Day classics including a cornbread stuffing with poblano peppers, Ancho Chile brined Turkey, a banana Dulce de Leche Cream Pie and more! 


After becoming friends on Spring Baking Championship, Ali, Nacho (winner of season 4), and Susana (season 2 finalist) have bonded over their love of food and the Mexican influenced cuisine of Texas. The fellow Texans found themselves as almost neighbors, with Susana and Nacho in San Antonio and Ali in Austin. Soon their families became fast friends at backyard barbecues and now you too can join in on the fiesta and hear stories from their experiences on Food Network and Cooking Channel!

About the Chefs:


Susana Mijares is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Her classical training as a pastry chef coupled with her childhood memories of eating Mexican desserts in her Mom's kitchen gave Susana a unique culinary point of view which landed her on the second season of Food Network's Spring Baking Championship where she placed in the final round among the top three finalists.


Nacho Aguirre took home the gold when he competed in and won Spring Baking Championship, Season 4. He credits his wife, fellow Spring Baking Championship alum and finalist, Susana Mijares, for teaching him everything he knows when it comes to the kitchen. Since Spring Baking Championship, Nacho has taken on a new role as a judge on Food Network, with appearances on Cupcake Championship, The Girl Scout Cookie Championship among others.


Ali Khan is not a trained chef but he certainly eats like one. The food writer/ blogger turned tv host came to prominence in 2015 with his show Cheap Eats on Cooking Channel. He has appeared as a judge on Chopped, host of Spring Baking Championship and appears in The Best Thing I Ever Ate.
