Mexican Cooking Class in Berkeley
Mexican food is as complex as any other world cuisine and is comprised of ingredients native to Mexico with influences from many other countries, especially Spanish. Mexican regional cooking is incredibly varied and completely different from the food served in Mexican restaurants outside of the country. Join us for a flavorful introduction to this vibrant cuisine. We will prepare recipes such as:
Chilied Tortilla Soup with Shredded Chard
Chicken with Poblanos, Mushrooms and Cream
Beer-Braised Carnitas with Pickled Red Onions
Classic Pot Beans
Mexican Wedding Cakes
The Dinner Tonight series is for beginning-to-intermediate level cooks who want to learn recipes that they can recreate at home. Students will prepare both simple weeknight recipes, and also dishes that can be made ahead of time for busy weeks. Each class will focus on basic knife skills and other techniques that make cooking easier and more pleasurable.
Feel free to bring wine or beer to enjoy with dinner.
