What to expect
  • Learn how to cook a perfect Mexican fiesta
  • Enjoy an intimate culinary experience in a working kitchen
  • Explore fundamental cooking techniques

Why doesn’t “fiesta” appear on the food pyramid? It’s essential to all diets... seriously. Although it seems as simple as tortilla, meat, cheese, and rice, Mexican food provides a wonderful blend of fruits, vegetables, meats, and beans. In this cooking class, you’ll receive a crash-course in Mexican culinary tradition as you explore how to make eight unique dishes -- not your typical “tortilla, meat, cheese, and rice.” You will prepare fan favorites and some fancier dishes, while staying on your toes in CAMAJE’s working kitchen setting. Get ready for your upcoming Fiesta Friday!

Note: A glass of wine per person is included. Your cooking menu includes:
  • Salsa and guacamole
  • Home-fried tortilla chips
  • Fish tacos
  • Tortilla soup
  • Chicken mole
  • Chipotle beans
  • Mexican rice
  • Tres leches cake
