Chef Emmanuel Corona
Emmanuel Corona had been a long time chef and colleague with Crazy Water for 20 years when asked about exploring a Mexican concept. Emmanuel had thoughts on this for quite some time and jumped at the idea – La Dama was finally born! He shared “I look forward to becoming a part of, and growing with La Dama. My goal is to see us create a Mexican restaurant that Milwaukee has never seen.”
Emmanuel, originally a local of Puebla and Mexico City, garnered his culinary skills from various sources. His first introduction into the food world took place at a young age with his grandmother and mother where he learned the art of making mole poblano and mole negro among other traditional favorites from the area.
Emmanuel and Peggy Magister began working together at her first restaurant in Cedarburg, The Fork Café. After 5 years he followed her to Crazy Water where he continued to hone his skills learning American fusion cuisine. Emanuel slowly incorporated many of his flavors into the Crazy Water menu. After 20 years he and Peggy worked together to create La Dama Mexican Kitchen and Bar.
