Edgar Rico, CIA ’11 is a 2022 James Beard Award winner for Best Emerging Chef and owner/chef at Nixta Taqueria in Austin, TX and Sara Mardanbigi is Nixta Taqueria co-owner and operations manager. Nixta is not a typical taquería. It treads a line between the super-traditional (they make their own masa and tortillas using heirloom corn from Mexico) and the unconventional (you don’t see many taquerias where duck confit stands in for carnitas).
