Beginners Guide to Mexican Gastronomy (in Spanish)

About this Workshop

Immerse yourself in Mexican culture, gastronomy, and flavors through this class with internationally renowned chef Marcela Ramírez. This is your opportunity to get acquainted with and enjoy authentic Mexican Gastronomy. Quick, basic, easy, fool-proof recipes that do not require you to be a master chef. When you run out of ideas for dinner, you will be able to recreate authentic Mexican flavours and dishes that will save you anytime. Get ready to receive endless compliments, and perhaps get mistaken for a world-class Mexican gastronomy connoisseur.

You will start by learning how to make Chilaquiles Rojos and Chilaquiles Verdes. These are interesting and dynamic Mexican dishes that lend themselves to be used as components of other delicious dishes that will be made in these classes, specifically, Enchiladas Rojas, Enchiladas Verdes, and Huevos Rancheros.

Bring your containers and appetites because you will get to enjoy the fruits of your labour at the end of the workshop. All dishes made are nut-free and vegan/vegetarian friendly.

About the Instructor

Marcela Ramírez was born and raised in México, and she is the proud owner of Cacao Vancouver (a Latin American restaurant in Kits), Salsa by Marcela (a new brand of small-batch, traditional, local cooking and dipping salsas), and an internationally-renowned chef.

Her upbringing was immersed around flavours, aromas, and varied gastronomical influences (Mexican and Palestinian mainly).
