Cooking Class: Make Mexican Culinary Traditions Your Own

Prepare a sumptuous four-course Mexican dinner under the guidance of Chef Luis in this hands-on cooking class. 

Boost your kitchen confidence as you explore time-honored cooking techniques and the rich Mexican spices that characterize these crowd-pleasing traditional dishes. Begin with Yucatan-style barbecued pork shoulder prepared with citrus and achiote. From there, master succulent shrimp enchiladas with homemade garlic cream sauce and manchego cheese. For your entrée, serve up tender pork ribs with green salsa and beans seasoned with garlic, cumin, tomatoes, chiles, coriander and Chihuahua cheese.

Chef Luis made my wife and I feel at home. He was very patient with us and helped us make 3 delicious meals plus the best flan I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family.
