Cooking Class - Bites from South of The Border!

Go on an unforgettable, jazzed up journey to culinary Mexico with Chef Julie

Join Chef Julie as you head south of the border and enter into a new culinary realm. Discover how delectable Mexican cuisine can be, prepared in a new, exciting, and sophisticated manner. You will discover an entirely new world of Mexican cuisine that will make your palate very pleased.

You will get a first hand lesson on savory shrimp tacos as you prepare them with traditional Mexican ingredients such as jicama, avocado, red onion, lime, salsa verde, and an array of Mexican seasonings. Chef Julie will show you how to stuff your shrimp taco so that the presentation is almost as good as it tastes! Next, you will create mouthwatering queso fundido, or melted cheese, that is full of seasonings and so appetizing, that you will have to replenish your supply of blue tortilla chips. Have you ever tried agua de Jamaica? Chef Julie shows you how to mix up this refreshing Mexican hibiscus tea. Comamos!

Chef Julie was amazing and accommodating! She is super knowledgeable of the food and cooking techniques. We had a great time and would highly recommend chef Julie to anyone looking for a fun experience and great food. Additionally, there was more than enough food so that we were full and had lots for leftovers the next day which was a nice bonus!

Chef Julie will impress you with her ability to maneuver herself through the different menu items to prepare. Her flatbread is uncomplicated, yet impressively topped with layers of flavors. Her healthy menu offers a variety of techniques and flavor profiles that will make anyone hungry for more. A knowledgeable chef who is ready to share her insight in the kitchen.
