Class Description:

Step away from the same ‘ole Christmas party fare as we head South-of-the-border for a spicy holiday cooking class. Traditional dishes play a big role in Mexican Christmas family celebrations.  Tonight, you’ll be treated to a real Mexican cooking celebration as experienced instructor, and a true Mexican cook, Susy Lara, teaches you to make one of her favorite holiday dishes.

We’ll greet you with one of Chef Susy’s favorite Margarita cocktails, then she’ll share coveted family recipes, secrets and techniques as she teaches you how to make Chicken Tamales with Tomatillo Sauce (from scratch!), plus other special dishes such as Atole that are served at the Lara Holiday Gathering.  We’ll end our festive feast with Buñuelo’s – a delectable sweet dessert and a Mexican Coffee. (Psst! It’s also one of Santa’s favorite treats!)

You’ll get to help Susy prepare some of these flavorful dishes…..and here’s a bonus, you’ll even take home a half-dozen tamales to share with your family (or not)!  Feel free to wear your favorite ugly Christmas sweater to this unique holiday celebration!
