Cinco de Mayo Celebration!
Today is Cinco de Mayo, that festive south-of-the-border holiday celebrated with lively music and lots of piquant Mexican dishes. So let’s get this party started!
Expect fresh ingredients, fiesta-infused flavors and delectable presentation as you work alongside Chef Dana Holland. He’s traveled extensively around the country to places like California and the southwest, and along the way he’s experienced and learned to prepare fresh food that showcase the rich and diverse culture found in small, family-owned Mexican restaurants.
Tonight, your palette will scream “Ole!” as it explodes with the bold and exciting flavors of dishes as Chef teaches a few of his top picks, along with some essential culinary techniques and tips as you learn recipes that are sure to blow your sombrero off.
You’ll get your taste buds going as we start off with a spicy Hot Lolita margarita to quench your thirst. Then, you’ll tie on an apron and help with some of the cooking activities alongside Chef Dana while he shows you how to create Mexican delights like On-the-Border Shrimp Ceviche appetizer, Moles Coloradito (chicken braised in a red chili sauce) served with fresh Corn Tortillas, and Frijoles Borrachos (‘drunken’ pinto beans) on the side.
For a sweet ending, how about an Ice Cream Sundae “Mil Besos” a Mexican classic made with Cinnamon roasted pineapple, Kahlua dulce de leche and fresh Sopapillas. Ay-ya-ya!
Wear your comfortable party (and kitchen) clothes, and join us for a fun cooking class as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo!
