The bounty of a classic Mexican spread comes to life, brimming with festive, wholesome flavor.
Mexican cuisine prepared with an eye on heritage is on the menu in this vibrant hands-on cooking class. Let Chef Luis introduce you to a variety of authentic ingredients, traditional recipes and gourmet techniques as you create a classic Mexican spread!
Kick off the class by creating a zesty cream cheese-based shrimp dip flavored with roasted peppers, followed by a refreshing salad featuring sliced cactus, crumbled feta and Mexican oregano. For the entrée, prepare an authentic pozole filled with hominy and fresh pork cuts. For dessert, bake gluten-free corn bread topped with custardy crème anglaise and strawberries.
Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Luis taught me how to properly chop an onion safely while also having even pieces. I learned a good tip from him in order to cry less during chopping by always using a very sharp knife. This is crucial in order to not release the gasses of the onion. I will definitely be using his tips and tricks in my home kitchen.
