Elote Cafe featured in FrontDoors

Elote CafĂ©’s in Sedona has signature starter called the Elote, a fire-roasted corn with spicy mayo, lime and cotija cheese. This delicious recipe is found in Tastes & Treasures II. We are grateful to Chef Jeff Smedstad for sharing this recipe with us. Recently Chef was featured in FrontDoors and describes his restaurant. “The menu is inspired by food I’ve had in people’s homes and markets,” Smedstad said. “We get travelers from all over the world visiting the restaurant and it’s a great compliment when diners from Mexico say my food reminds them of home.” From FrontDoors interview, “The most popular dishes are the enchiladas, braised lamb shank with ancho chile sauce, and smoked pork cheeks with cascabel chile sauce and Smedstad’s grandmother’s corn cake. Desserts include flan, Mexican chocolate pie and pastel de elote, a sweet corn cake with dulce de leche and agave ice cream.” Tastes & Treasures available at
