< Plant Based Mexican Cuisine


Overview

Mexican cuisine is naturally full of fresh vegetables and beautiful fruits, so it’s easy to build an entire plant-based menu of traditional Mexican dishes. In this class, we seize the opportunity to work with some authentic Mexican staples and throw in a few not-so-traditional spins on some of our favorite dishes. Everyone will participate in creating each item on the menu which is gluten free and vegetarian. Each class is 3 hours with 2-8 people.
