Sysco salsa competition
There are several reasons to pay a visit to Bisbee, the fair weather, Victorian homes nestled in the mountains, or the abundance of art galleries and local musicians playing into the night. But there is also Santiagos, that provides the best Southwestern flavors ever imagined.
In the strive for excellence, they have again achieved a new height in the restaurant business. Karina Franco-Batty, Chef at Santiago's, won the salsa competion held at the Tucson convention center by Sysco Foods Cooperation.
She went up against 10 other Arizona chefs and won for her use of organic local vegetables and peppers for her roast salsa. She has consistently brought her talents to the table, being always creative and innovative in both Santiagos and The Bisbee Grille. Congratulations Karina, and know that you are always developing as a serious Chef and we look forward to your next dish.
