Taste Bud Travels: Mouthwatering Mexico
Tuesday, September 2nd
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $30 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Dive into late summer cooking by celebrating the cuisine of Mexico, which is fresh, flavorful, and makes great use of sweet corn, tomatoes, melons and more hot weather favorites. We’ll go beyond the Americanized Tex-Mex that is often misidentified as Mexican food for some of the true flavors of Mexico- smoky spices, fresh herbs, avocados and citrus. You’ll learn all about the vast culinary landscape of our neighbors and the importance of the many forms of corn throughout Mexican culture. We’ll work with different types of fresh and dried chilies, make our own chile powder and learn how to tame the heat with one of the most refreshing beverages of all time- aqua fresca . Class has gluten free options upon request and has hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Aqua Fresca with Lime

  • Veracruzana Shrimp Ceviche

  • Elotes (grilled Mexican street corn)

  • Homemade Tortilla Chips with Smoky Salsa Roja

  • Posole (Mexican hominy soup with pork)

  • Tacos al Pastor

  • Sweet Chocolate Tamales
