Chef Janos Wilder and The Carriage House (Tucson, Arizona) hosted Chef Diego Hernandez of Corazón de Tierra (Ensenada, Mexico) for a cooking demonstration and pop-up dinner on Friday, October 7. When I saw Chef Hernandez's name on the event notifications, I quickly drew the connection to his episode of Chef's Night Out and knew I had to experience his humor and talents in person.
