Grandmother's Workshop #7- New Mexican Holiday Feast: Posole & Feast Day Cookies
Please help Slow Food San Francisco ring in the Holiday Season by attending our New Mexican Holiday Feast Grandmother's Workshop. We will be making posole, a delicious stew of pork, dried hominy and chilies, Feast Day cookies, and other traditional New Mexican celebratory dishes.

Our Grandmother for this class is Anna Budinger, a long time resident of San Francisco whose claims to fame include but are not limited to being a business analyst, an amateur historian (BA in History UC Santa Cruz) and a self-taught cook.  One of her favorite pastimes is to read old cookbooks and books on culinary history and cook up the dishes described in them.  Anna has family in Albuquerque, NM and has made many trips to the Land of Enchantment over the years.  During these trips she would visit the Northern New Mexico Pueblos and has developed an appreciation for the Pueblo Indians and their culture.  She collects traditionally made pueblo pots.  

New Mexican cooking today is a wonderful incorporation of Pueblo Indian, Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo foodstuffs and culinary traditions.  This Grandmother Workshop, however, will focus on the dishes that predate the arrival of the Anglo pioneers and would have been made to celebrate a special winter feast day in a Northern New Mexico pueblo or ranchero in the early to mid 1800's.  This was time when Pueblo Indian cooks fully integrated such Spanish imports as pork, sugar, old world spices, and wheat into their traditional dishes based on chilies, beans, corn and, squash.

Please note that in keeping with the traditional preparation of these delightful dishes, lard was and is used extensively in traditional New Mexican cooking and will be used in this workshop as well.  

So if the sound of a sumptuous meal coupled with a little American history strikes your fancy, please sign up for this workshop today.
