Another El Paso chef is hitting it big.
The owner of Tara Tai, Sai Pituk, has already begun filming for a new show on the Cooking Channel. She'll travel around the world to sample the food of street vendors and share recipes with viewers.
She says they started filming right here in El Paso and New Mexico and will be branching out internationally next month.
But her calling wasn't always to be a mover and shaker in the culinary world.
"I was studying to be a dentist and had a mid-life crisis and got a tattoo," Pituk said.
That mid-life crisis took her away from the bright lights of New York to El Paso. The show will air after they finish filming in a few months.
