Hola! Our new Mexican Cooking Experience offers you an authentic taste of Mexico right here in Stratford. Our Founder, Fulden, is heading to Mexico shortly to work with some amazing chefs to learn more about Mexican & Mayan cooking. She will be bringing back and sharing this knowledge with you.
* In this fabulous experience you’ll learn how to make handmade tortillas in the traditional way, with a press. You’ll make a few different types of tortillas including wheat flour, corn flour and blue corn flour.
* You’ll also learn some different preparations of salsas (from basic to the gastronomic), marinades and recaudos (moles and pastes) for the most important meat and chicken preparations. You’ll prepare salsa verde cruda and salsa verde de molcajete for your tacos and salsa verde for the pork and chicken, as well as learning the basic red and green salsas for soups and stews.
* You’ll make ceviche, a fresh and healthy seafood appetiser and 5 different types of tacos. The tacos include:
Al Pastor Fish Tacos (fish marinated in a traditional Mexican marinade then grilled or fried)
Cochinita Pibil Pork Tacos (pork marinated in a mixture of citrus juices, paste, and spices, then slow cooked until tender and full of flavour)
Dorados Beef Tacos (these are made using cooked ground beef which are pan fried to make them crispy and golden)
Birria Chicken Tacos (the chicken is marinated in an adobo sauce before being cooked in a broth)
Barbacoa Vegetarian Tacos (made using grilled veggies)
All tacos can then be topped with cheese, guacamole and salsas.
For dessert it’s delicious, sweet tamales, a traditional Mexican dish made with masa, corn dough, corn husks and pineapple.
At the end of the class, you’ll get to enjoy your Mexican feast with a Mexican cocktail consisting of Mangonadas, mango and tequila under the beautiful TDH canopy of flowers.
