  • The Salsa Twins of El Pinto Restaurant are wanting to launch a TV series about New Mexican food. 

    John and Jim Thomas of El Pinto Restaurant & Salsa Company are turning to the Internet to raise funds to produce the New Mexico-based travel adventure TV show. 

    The program, named “Raw & Wild,” rediscovers raw and wild indigenous foods growing across New Mexico. With funding as the first major obstacle to getting any TV program off the ground, they are embracing Kickstarter.com to help fund a small portion of the entire production costs necessary for the pilot.

    In line with Kickstarter.com guidelines there are a set number of days to raise all the funds, or the project receives nothing. The Thomas’s project has a 31-day fundraising window, from start to finish. If the allotted budget of $17,800 isn’t raised before Feb. 12, all pledges are cancelled and the project will not be funded. This funding is a portion of the $50,000 budget necessary to bring the pilot to completion. The balance is being funded by the Thomas brothers.

  • Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino, the AAA Four Diamond resort located 15 minutes north of downtown Santa Fe, has appointed Thomas Hartwell as executive chef. He will oversee culinary operations. 

    Hartwell joined the resort in 2014 as executive sous chef and has quickly made a name for himself in the Santa Fe food scene, including being named a finalist in Edible Santa Fe’s Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown in past September. 

    As executive chef at the 395-room resort located on the sovereign Native American land of the Pojoaque, Hartwell will oversee culinary operations for catering and banquets, and the resort’s five restaurants including Red Sage, the New American steak and chophouse lead by Chef de Cuisine Edgar Morales;  Iguana Café & Cantina, the casual New Mexican-inspired restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner; and Towa Clubhouse & Grill overlooking the resort’s 27-holes of championship golf at Towa Golf Club. Hartwell will also oversee the Painted Parrot restaurant located on the casino level.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — The brutal frontier saga “The Revenant” landed a leading 12 nominations for the 88th annual Academy Awards.

    The strong showing Thursday for “The Revenant,” including a best actor nod for Leonardo DiCaprio and best supporting actor for Tom Hardy, follows its win at the Golden Globes. It sets up director Alejandro Inarritu for a possible back-to-back win following his sweep for best picture, director and screenplay for “Birdman” last year.

    “We gave it our all on this film and this appreciation from the Academy means a lot to me and my colleagues who made it possible,” said Inarritu in a statement. “Champagne and mezcal will run tonight!”

    George Miller’s post-apocalyptic sequel “Mad Max: Fury Road” followed with 10 nominations, including best picture and best director for Miller. Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic “The Martian” landed seven nominations, including best picture and best actor for Matt Damon, but, surprisingly, no best director nod for Scott.
