Explore the bold and comforting flavors of Southwestern cooking with Chef Linda.

In this hands-on cooking class, you'll practice a range of culinary techniques that will enhance your skills in the kitchen with Chef Linda as your expert guide.

After preparing your street corn elote antojito, or starter, Chef Linda will show you how to stuff and coat chile rellenos and layer flavor in a rich pipian sauce. Then, highlight Southwestern ingredients with traditional black beans a la olla with onions, tomatoes and cumin, and finish with a classic dessert: Buñuelos topped with cinnamon and served with a Mexican chocolate sundae.

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

This was more than just cooking food. Linda spent considerable time sharing her vast knowledge and use of the different ingredients that went into our meal. She also gave us tips and showed us ways that will make us better cooks no matter what we might be cooking. A superb evening! Thanks Linda.

Linda is great! We had a lesson in chiles- fresh and dried- before we got cooking. She kept us engaged and on track. We learned about the effect of salt on flavors… and those flavors were delicious!!
