Discover the secret of Drinkin’ & Cookin’ with Sunora Bacanora through these exclusive recipes from Chef Manuel Salcido

Chef Manuel Salcido

Hola Amigos,

My name is Chef Manuel Salcido and I have the pleasure of taking you on a culinary adventure surrounding the Sonoran Secret – Sunora Bacanora & Sunora Cream De Bacanora Mocha .

Ever since graduating from the Instituto Culinario de Mexico A.C. in 2007, my passion has been to create fantastic and delicious recipes using the legendary spirit known as Bacanora, distilled from Agave Pacifica that grows exclusively in the state of Sonora, Mexico. I have spent the last 10 years traveling throughout the state working with local chefs and home cooks to create some of the most delicious Mexican dishes and cocktails you have ever tasted. Through my travels, I’ve discovered that the secret to these uniquely flavorful dishes and cocktails is using only the very best bacanora — Sunora Bacanora.

I’m also currently working with other chefs, mixologists, and even some of the local cooks to develop our second book. I’d love for you to be part of the adventure. Go to your favorite retail store and get a bottle of our Sunora Bacanora or Sunora Cream De Bacanora Mocha and create your own recipe. Send or email it to us and you can be part of our “ Bacanora Recipe Team”. Members will be eligible for some fantastic deals on trips throughout the state of Sonora, as well as other cool stuff.

I hope to meet all of you at one of our upcoming cooking shows or via email. And, I’m looking forward to trying your Sunora Bacanora creations!
