Known to television viewers as the “Too Hot Tamales,” they are co-owners of the Border Grill in Santa Monica, California, named one of the best restaurants in America by Gourmet magazine. In 1988 they were the first women to receive the California Restaurant Writers’ “Chef of the Year” award and in 1993 they were two of only 16 chefs worldwide invited to appear with Julia Child in PBS’ Home Cooking with Master Chefs.
