On October 11, 2001, The Jalapeno Cafe visited the State Fair of Texas to observe the Tex-Mex and Tabasco cook-off's. I am happy to report that the art of cooking is alive and well in the Lone Star State. We saw some great looking food and a good time was had by all. I have put up some of the images from the fair for you to see.
