What Makes A Master?Sep 23, 2013
If you’re ever in Kansas City and you get tired of barbecue, there’s a FANTASTIC hole in the wall Mexican place you have to try.
It’s called Dos De Oros, and owner Miguel Cervantez is what you might call a “master.” Aside from his expertise in preparation, ingredients and authenticity, there’s one more part of Miguel’s culinary know-how that makes him a master of Mexican cuisine. It’s his insistence that he is NOT, in fact, a master. Get to know him and you’ll see (and taste!) that Miguel’s skill comes from his unending dedication to being a student.
His carnitas are probably the best in town, but that didn’t stop Miguel from traveling to Mexico to learn how to make them just a little better.
So maintain your curiosity, and never stop learning. With that dedication, you’ll find others will recognize you as a master.
If you need an example, I highly recommend Miguel…and his carnitas!!!
