This introduction to traditional Mexican
cooking is one of our favourite seasonal courses bursting with hot, complex
flavours. Mexican cooking will get your taste buds tingling! Mexican food is
renowned for its use of chillies - fresh and dried - and we run this class
during the Autumn when the chillies are fresh and ripe.
We’ll use a variety of fresh chillies grown just six miles from Bath at The Upton Cheyney Chilli Farm, as well as special Mexican
dried chillies, herbs and spices.
- You will learn how to use different kinds
of chillies including jalapeno, poblano, serrano, chipotle, pasilla. We will
cover how to prepare, grow, store and cook with both fresh and dried chillies.
- You will learn about unusual ingredients
such as tomatillos, masa harina, sweetcorn husks, quinoa and epazote and you
will also learn where to source them.
We’ll make a range of Mexican dishes, for
- Tamales Rellenos de Calabacin
- Tortillas de Maiz
- Arroz a la Mexicana
- Frijoles Negros Refritos
- Tomatillos Salsa cruda
- Corn & Habanero Salsa
- Chocolate and Chilli Mole Sauce
- Mexican tequila chocolate pudding
We always choose our recipes based on the
season and availability of the produce.
There will lots of eating and tasting
during the day and a late lunch to finish served with organic wines or local
You will receive a pack of all of the recipes we have made during the
day so that you can recreate them at home including extra information on
chillies and Mexican ingredients.
