Regional Mexican: Oaxacan Nights with Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt
Join us as we journey south-of-the-border and enjoy an lovely evening of exquisite regional Mexican food from the city of Oaxaca – the birthplace of Mole Sauce – that luxurious dark sauce made with chiles and just a hint of Mexican chocolate.
Located in southern Mexico, this gorgeous city is one of Mexico’s major gastro-historical centers that boasts cuisine that is well-known around the world. Few other regions can claim such a profound and long-lasting indigenous influence on their regional cuisine.
Our own CCKC Executive Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt will lead you on a culinary journey as she teaches you to prepare a fantastic meal featuring some of their iconic dishes. She’ll lead off with Smokey Guacamole, Oaxaca-Style appetizer, followed by a crisp Avocado, Watercress and Pecan Salad.
Tonight’s star of the show will be one of Chef Jill’s all-time favorites - Mole Verde with Chicken served with Oaxacan Black Beans and Rice on the side. Finally, you’ll help prepare Natilla, a classic creamy custard with fresh summer berries for a sweet end our Latin feast.
You’ll get to work in small groups next to Chef Jill and help with some of the cooking activities, too. Then, gather around the table with new friends to enjoy the fabulous meal you’ve helped prepare.
