Authentic Mexican cooking goes beyond following a recipe. In this hands-on class, you will master how to work with masa (a corn-based dough), a key ingredient in corn tortillas and across Mexican cuisine. We’ll teach you how to make antojitos (street food) like sopes and tlacoyos, so you’ll leave class with the confidence to experiment with the endless possibilities of this versatile dough, including dumplings (chochoyotes) you can add to any soup or stew. You’ll learn all about the balance of flavours that make Mexican food unique, and how to apply these techniques at home. At the end of class, you’ll sit down to enjoy everything you’ve cooked: sopes and tlacoyos with refried beans, chochoyotes in Mexican broth, and pan-roasted arbol chile salsa.
