For our second installment of our chef driven dinners, we are very excited to welcome Chef Alvin Schultz from Houston.
Alvin has been cooking his whole life.
He was featured on Fox’s MasterChef season 2 with Chef Gordon Ramsay who said, “You can’t be this creative and not be in the [food] industry…” In 2011, Alvin created Eat.Drink.EXPERIENCE!, a culinary services company. As Chef/Owner of Eat.Drink.EXPERIENCE!, Alvin has done consulting for brands like Polyscience and Vitamix. His creative food and cocktails have been featured in numerous publications like Houstonia, and My Table Magazine.
Since 2015, Alvin has been involved with SACREDAGAVE.ORG and passionate about agave spirits and the communities and families that make these ancestral spirits. Alvin continues to hold fundraisers benefiting the maestros that keep the tradition of agave spirits alive.
In recent years, Alvin has evolved Eat.Drink.EXPERIENCE! to include everything from private dining to restaurant consulting. Visit EatDrinkExperience.com to see all of what Alvin offers, and see his latest creations.

This meal will be paired with four expressions from Real Minero:
Barril, Cuishe, Tripón, and their Pechuga.
Real Minero is located in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca, and produces only small batch mezcal distilled in clay pot stills (en barro). Graciela Angeles, daughter of the late mezcalero Don Lorenzo Angeles and general manager of Real Minero, leads a palenque that combines ancient distillation techniques with the cutting edge of responsible production and cultivation. The mezcal they produce sets the bar for other brands, and we thought this dinner deserved a special pairing. Our own Konrad will be on hand to do a talk and presentation about his visit to the Real Minero palenque.
Tickets are $120 a person and available via the link above in a limited quantity.
