Prepare various recipes from regional Mexico in this hands-on class with Chef Liza.

The cuisine of Mexico is diverse, and relies on a variety of preparation methods, including baking, roasting and even chemical cooking. You will utilize all of these techniques as you learn the ropes of authentic Mexican cooking with Chef Liza.

Begin by learning how to make seafood ceviche cooked with nothing but a squeeze of citrus, and make completely from-scratch Mexican tacos filled with roasted pork and pineapple. Then, it's time to master the craft of Mexican-style baking as you prepare a traditional tres leches cake for dessert.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Liza is personable and has some great dishes to offer. Her home was cozy and could fit about 5-7 people to work and dine. My favorite dish was the lamb curry, which was packed with flavor and served with seasoned naan bread. I'll be making this dish and the others in the future no doubt. Thank you for hosting, Liza!
