Al’s background and passion for cooking, blends the flavors of his Argentine roots with the culinary diversity of Italy and Texas.
Born in Argentina, Al was raised in Buenos Aires, a province enriched by Italian influences and a deep love for 'Asado,' our cherished tradition of grilling. From an early age, the enticing aroma of barbecued meats and the taste of Malbec wine were an integral part of his upbringing.
Al’s culinary journey took a significant turn when he met his wife from Texas during his time in Rome and Spain. Living in Buenos Aires, raising their kids they embraced both Argentine and American cultures and with each visit to the States, in 2015, they made the bold move to the Texas hill country.
Embracing Texan traditions, Al drove right into the world of grilling, immersing myself in the art of BBQ and relishing the diverse flavors and techniques. With my Argentine-Italian culinary heritage as a foundation, he blended American favorites with his own creative twist, a fusion that has been a source of joy and satisfaction.
“Open fire grilling is not just a culinary technique; it's a return to simplicity, a way to connect with what truly matters. Through my journey, I've come to believe that sharing food brings people together, transcending boundaries and creating precious moments that linger in our memories. Rain or shine, scorching heat or chilly days, I find immense joy in grilling, a passion that I'm thrilled to share with you. Thank you for joining me on this flavorful adventure!” Al Frugoni
