Mexican cuisine is some of the oldest in the world and in every bite, there is a story waiting to be told. Dating back to the ancient Aztecs and Mayans, many of the key ingredients used then are still staples of key dishes today - from tortillas and tacos, to enchiladas and tamales. But through colonization, Mexican food has evolved and carries flavour influences from the Caribbean, Portugal, West Africa and South America. Learn how to take simple but traditional Mexican ingredients like tomatoes, corn, and beans and turn them into the best Mexican meal you’ve had since your last trip under the hot Mexican sun.
Feel the sun on your skin as you breathe in the briny sea water. Look down to your table setting as you gaze upon purple cabbage, roasted marks of freshly made flour tortillas, and golden batter crusting freshly caught fish.... This class will transport you to warm summer days as you learn how to master tortillas two ways, make fish batter so light and crisp it almost melts, and shrimp tacos that burst with flavor.
It’s hard to imagine a mix of such simple ingredients could come together to create such an incredibly mouthwatering meal and yet that is exactly what you’ll do in this class! Master Enchiladas and Adobo Sauce. The incredible scents of this Mexican meal will bring everyone in the house running.
STUFFED MEATBALLS WITH SALSA VERDE
When you say “meatballs” chances are a very clear image appears in your head. Put that aside because Mexican Meatballs are far from your traditional meatball, but may very well become your new favourite! Made with a surprising ingredient combination such as peppermint, tomatillos and boiled eggs to name a few, each bite will leave an explosion of flavour in your mouth and excited to eat another.
The smell of chilis and spices simmering on your stove, freshly made tortillas, refried beans and rice... This is what food dreams are made of. Originating in Puebla, Mexico, this Chicken Tinga class will have you shredding chicken, whipping up adobo, and cranking out homemade tortillas in no time.
