Cooking with Copper, and a good Mexican Food Place

LaJuana M. Gilmore | Jun 3, 2000 03:07 PM

I'm not sure what kind of messages or requests are put on your message board, but I would like to know if there are any gourmet chefs out there that can tell, why copper pans are good for cooking, and what things to cook in them. I know that whipping egg whites in a copper mixing bowl increases the volume, but what else are they good for.

I'm from Houston and there is a good Mexican food place called Lupe Tortillas off of Hwy 6 between I10 south and Memorial Drive. It is just a small house, and if you go during lunch or dinner rush you might have to wait. Be careful if you have margaritas they delicious and potent. There entres are king size, and wonderful. Call for directions to there place if you are new to Houston or just to the west side. EAT AND ENJOY!!!!!!
