Fiesta Cinco de Mayo!
Let the fiesta begin! Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, that festive south-of-the-border holiday celebrated with lively music and lots of piquant Mexican dishes! Why fight the crowds and stand in long lines when you can party with us, garner some fabulous new culinary techniques, and learn to make some delicious Mexican cuisine so you can host your own fiesta anytime!
Expect fresh ingredients, fiesta-infused flavors, and delectable presentation as you work alongside our very own Executive Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt. Mexican cuisine is her specialty, so you’re in for a ‘real-deal’ treat that will make palette scream “Ole!” as it explodes with the bold and exciting flavors of these tasty dishes.
You’ll learn lots of culinary techniques and tips as she teaches Mexican dishes like Mini Ceviche Tostadas topped with a cool Watermelon Radish Pico, Baja Fish Tacos - grilled fish fillets marinated in lime, garlic and chiles in corn tortillas with Mango Avocado Salsa, and Black Beans and Corn Rice. For dessert, Chef Jill will pull out all the stops with a delicious Margarita Sorbet.
No fiesta is complete without cocktails, so you’ll enjoy a CCKC Signature Margarita to toast our Mexican celebration! Mucho good!
You’ll get some hands-on cooking time next to Chef Jill, too! Wear your comfortable party (and kitchen) clothes, (and your sombrero, if you dare!) and come join in on the Cinco de Mayo cooking fun!
