Cooking Class: Develop Traditional Mexican

Free yourself from the constraints of mediocre Mexican cuisine during this engaging cooking class. Begin your authentic Mexican menu with hibiscus lime agua fresca. Form a delightful main dish of classic seared ahi tuna tostadas with salsa macha involving fresh ingredients like tōgarashi, chilies, macadamia nuts and avocado. Create delectable wild mushroom and smoked corn quesadillas with queso Oaxaca. Finish with a scrumptious sweetened rice pudding accompanied by caramel and coffee called arroz con ceche.
