Cooking Class: Make a Mexican-Inspired Holiday Spread

Create a delectable Mexico-inspired menu in this Christmas cooking class. First, you’ll make melty queso infused with spices and the warming flavors of poblano peppers. Then, create a zesty take on classic lasagna by making fresh pasta sheets from scratch to be layered with corn, zucchini and cheese. You’ll also whip up a fresh salad of bright citrus fruits, earthy beets and crunchy jicama tossed in a gourmet dressing. For dessert, bake classic shortbread cookies with the delightful rich flavor of Mexican hot chocolate.

Chef Linda was fantastic- organized, knowledgeable and friendly. I got purchased this experience as a gift for my partner because we have a special connection to New Orleans. We had so much fun cooking and eating delicious food (some recipes were from restaurants we had been to!) and learning. Would definitely recommend to a friend and want to take more classes from Chef Linda in the future!
