Award-winning chef, Food Network Hot Lister and half of the power team who launched Beto & Son, Julian Rodarte stars in this episode. He credits his abuelita’s resourceful culinary skills and his father’s food artistry for inspiring his success. Julian reveals what it took to get his mentor to support his dreams and when he began pursuing this passion. He compares what he learned about the technical side of the industry in culinary school to the business aspect his father taught him. Julian dishes on what it was like competing on Beat Bobby Flay alongside his dad, who’d been dreaming of that moment since he was a child. The first-generation American shares how his family’s farm-fresh Mexican dishes inspired his palette and what hosting dinner parties growing up taught him about running a restaurant. Julian explains what he strives for at each of his concepts and the influence aromas and music have on guests’ overall experience. Finally he spills the secret to his award-winning nitrogen margaritas and who was really the brains behind the viral champagne vending machine.
