Tommy Vargas

Tommy Vargas was greatly influenced by his extensive travels throughout the various culinary rich regions of Mexico and France. Growing up around his grandparents’ Mexican restaurant in the San Francisco Mission District, Tommy savored authentic Mexican food and continues that tradition in his class recipes today. His business Hands-On Cooking Adventures, which specializes in private tequila tasting and cooking parties, has taken an exciting leap and is now organizing culinary/distillery trips to the valley of Tequila in the beautiful state of Jalisco.
