Bringing a chef’s edge to street tacos, Jaime Hernandez, has honed that edge since he was 13 years old, cooking with his mother and grandmother in Mexico. At age 18, he came to the United States, where he attended culinary school in Austin, then worked his way through kitchens at the Gage Hotel in Marathon, Supper American Eatery at the Pearl’s Luxurious, Hotel Emma, the private San Antonio club The Argyle and La Cosecha Mexican Table in New Braunfels.
Shortly after the pandemic, Chef Jaime left La Cosecha to open La Fonda de Jaime. Regarding his time at La Fonda de Jaime, “It was more about surviving and following my dream,” he said. When opportunity knocks, Jaime knows it's time to open the door and he's been given great ones so far due to his innovative touch on traditional Mexican cuisine that inspires savory bites of indulgence to all who have the pleasure of biting into.
He was recruited at Boeing Center at Tech Port in January 2022 as Sous Chef and worked diligently with Chef James Bocanegra to open and prep the kitchen and back of house efforts at Boeing Center at Tech Port. Shortly after the one year anniversary of Boeing Center at Tech Port, Chef Jaime was proudly promoted to Executive Chef where he plans to bring a state-of-the-art cuisine experience to this state-of-the-art venue!
