This year he brings some of his most requested tips and tricks for the city of Dallas.  From his early stages of childhood, Tahhan demonstrated his attraction for the culinary world. He went from playing cars to playing with pots and pans. One of his heavy influencers was his neighborhood friend’s father whom he called “Senor David”. At the age of 13, he along with his mother made their way to the United States. At that point, Tahhan had an obesity issue, which prompted him to create some of the most healthy and delicious recipes. Chef James has studied and been part of some of the top leading universities. He started his culinary career with preparation from the very prestigious “Le Cordon Bleu” culinary school.  There he specialized in International Cuisine and Bakery. His passion for food took him far. He graduated with Honors from Le Cordon Bleu.  During his time in school, he began his own catering business called “Avokado”. Here he was able to practice and put into play all that he had learned in school.

After some time, Chef James decided to audition for the morning show “Levantate”. He then became the TV network’s official chef. After some time, the TV channel “Utilisima” picked Tahhan and made him part of their top show “Puro Chef”. One of his greatest accomplishments was being able to crossover to the American public when he was chosen to be a part of the campaign “NBC Healthy Week”.

Look for this extremely talented and driven Chef at the Latin Gourmet Awards!
