At her Satellite Cooking School  which operated until 2008, in the award winning La Hacienda restaurant in the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort in Scottsdale, AZ., she specialized in teaching favorite Regional Mexican dishes, simplified. The Schools have received rave reviews from the culinary press including being rated as the Best in the US and one of the 10 best hotel cooking schools in the world by Gayot hotel rating service .

Prior to following her passion for Southwestern cooking, she was a corporate marketing executive for four major corporations, American Express, General Electric, Con Edison and Public Service Company of New Mexico. Through her writing, teaching and television projects, she continues to season this country's melting pot with the rich culinary, cultural and historical heritage of the American Southwest. Ms. Butel is listed in Who's Who in American Women, Outstanding Young Women, Platinum Who's Who and the World Who's Who.
