If you want to expand your culinary and barbeque skills, this is the place to be! We will work through various recipes and culinary techniques that guide you toward becoming competent in the kitchen and on the grill. Participants will be introduced to many ingredients and be exposed to a variety of flavors and cooking methods, as well as language and culture from Mexico. Each session will allow students to grow and develop skills to be used again. We will make our own tortillas, pickles and salsas as well. Vegetarian option available upon request.
Week 1 ~ Breakfast Tacos
Week 2 ~ Enchiladas Verdes
Week 3 ~ Pollo Asado
