Hey, kids (ages 9-14), step away from the same ‘ole summer day at the pool as we head south-of-the-border for a spicy 4-hour interactive Mexican cooking class.

Today, you’ll be treated to a ‘real deal’ cooking class as experienced instructor, and a true Mexican cook, Susy Lara, teaches you to make homemade Chicken Tamales with Tomatillo Sauce…  from scratch.

In case you didn’t know, tamales are incredibly versatile… they can be breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or appetizer… and they are perfect to serve year-round. They can be made with meat, cheese, fruit or any combination and served with any number of sauces... kids eat ‘em up!

Today, our tamale expert will also share coveted family recipes, secrets and techniques as she teaches the kids how to make some of her favorite side dishes to enjoy with their fresh tamales, like Mexican Rice and Refried Beans with Chorizo that the kids will love, as well.  We’ll end our Mexican feast with fried Buñuelos – a delectable sweet dessert that’s served with Vanilla Ice Cream. Soooo good!

Important:  We require a waiver to be signed on behalf of each student by a parent or legal guardian prior to your child’s admittance to this class.  This waiver requests a phone number where you can be reached during the class if necessary, and names of any additional people who are authorized to pick up the child after class. We strongly encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver and bring it to class with your student.  If we don’t receive a signed Waiver, your child will not be allowed to attend class.  We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule.  If someone other than the parent drops off your child, they will need evidence that they are the legal guardian for your child in order to sign a Waiver at that time.  For safety reasons, we also recommend that students under 18 wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.

NOTE: So that your kids have the best possible experience and the instructors have their full attention, our policy is that only registered students are allowed in the classroom while classes are in session.  Parents should plan to pick up their students at the end of the advertised hours for their class. We thank you for your cooperation!
