About eight years ago, Tim Vasquez, owner of Someburros and Isabel's Amor, was so moved by an annual family gathering in Guadalupe that he wrote a book about it called "The Taco Stand." "Just seeing the family gathered around the table and sharing memories around food was the inspiration," Vasquez says. The main character is based on the family matriarch and Vasquez's grandmother, Isabel, who passed away 32 years ago. "It's not necessarily a true story, but Isabel is the main character who loves to cook for other people."
