Susie and Iván Núñez have developed a comfortable blend of international culinary styles that has evolved into the distinctive Casa Núñez flavor. Iván learned the traditional cooking of his native Puerto Rico from his grandmother (“A,” short for Angela) and his great-aunt (Titi Maria). As a young man, he not only owned a successful Mexican restaurant called Paso Real in New Mexico, but also placed third in the prestigious Chilympiad in San Marcos, Texas. He later married Susie in Gibraltar and the pair made their first home together in Madrid, Spain.  Through his Air Force Attaché duty at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid, the couple began collecting authentic recipes from both Spanish and third-country acquaintances. They had regular reasons to invite a wide variety of guests to the Núñez home for meals and the Casa Núñez entertainment style was born. Using traditional elements from both the Mediterranean and Puerto Rico, Susie and Iván have fully incorporated the rustic arts of food preparation into their daily cooking and are happy to share those practices.
