Instructor: Vicky Lara
Location: The Culinary Center of Kansas City

Tonight, we’re heading south-of-the-border for some spicy fun with our own Mexican cooking expert, Vicky Lara.  She grew up learning to cook traditional foods in her mother’s cocina – yep, she’s the real deal.

Vicky is excited to teach a brand new menu centered around Beef Birria Tacos.  If you haven’t heard of them yet, it’s possible you may be living under a rock, because this juicy, cheesy, delicious food sensation has taken social media by storm.

Birria Tacos (tacos de birria) are braised meat inside a corn tortilla. Uh, yum! Traditionally, served as a stew, until someone had the bright idea to stuff it into a taco shell and fry it up….and so the addiction began. Trust us, these are here to stay…and you’re the lucky amigos who get to learn how easy it is to make them in your own cocina as Vicky walks you through the process, step-by-step.

You’ll also learn to make some delicious accompaniments like Cilantro Lime Rice, homemade Corn Tortillas, Grilled Corn, and a cool, creamy dessert to end our feast. 

Yes, you’ll enjoy a CCKC signature Margarita (duh) and, yes, you’ll tie on an apron and help Vicky with some of tonight’s cooking activities. You’ll not only learn (and love!) these fabulous recipes… you’ll also pick up some practical cooking skills and techniques along the way.

So, what are you waiting for? Gather some friends and join us for this fun Friday night cooking class!
