cooking is one of our favourite seasonal courses bursting with hot, complex
flavours and will get your taste buds tingling!
Mexico has the perfect climate for eating out in the streets and the markets are full of street food stalls selling roasted corn on the cob, tortillas and tamales. On this course you will learn how to make traditional quick Mexican dishes, so different from Tex-Mex!
- We will show you how to cook with different kinds
of chillies. We will
cover how to prepare 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 start with:
- 'Huevos rancheros' a Mexican breakfast
and then make a selection of the following dishes:
- Tamales Rellenos de Calabacin (stuffed corn husks)
- Tortillas de Maiz
- Arroz a la Mexicana
- Frijoles Negros Refritos
- Tomatillos Salsa cruda
- Corn and 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. 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.
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.
