Description

Inspiration, recipes and hands-on practice to discover and create the delicious food of Mexico & Latin America. Fajitas, Burritos, Tacos and Enchiladas are a few of the dishes that Mexico is well known for and enjoyed by so many for their flavours, colours, textures, and great use of healthy, easily available ingredients. Some of the dishes we値l make will be Thyme Roasted Vegetable & Quinoa Burritos, Crispy Baked Avocado & Tomato Tacos, and Chicken Fajitas with Guacamole & Pico de Gallo.

What can students expect?

Spend a day making and enjoying delicious, fresh, and new dishes expanding your recipe repertoire and skills. Learners will gain inspiration and recipes and hands-on practice to discover and create the delicious food of Mexico & Latin America. We値l focus on preparing the key ingredients and making the building blocks of creating fresh, healthy and easy Mexican dishes so you can replicate them at home and progress to trying new versions of your own design.

Fajitas, Burritos, Tacos and Enchiladas are a few of the dishes that Mexico is well known for and through a combination of observation and hands-on practice you will learn how to make and use guacamole, pico de gallo, salsas, cremas, tortillas, and herbs to make dishes such as Thyme Roasted Vegetable & Quinoa Burritos, Crispy Baked Avocado & Tomato Tacos, and Chicken Fajitas with Guacamole & Pico de Gallo.

We値l cover skills and techniques such as knife skills, vegetable preparation, adapting recipes, and flavour combining and balancing.

We値l start with core recipe sheets and through tasting, discussion, exchanging ideas, and recipe research, we値l also explore how to adjust the recipes to give you lots of options to make the dishes your own.

Dishes prepared will be eaten as part of a tasting lunch.

Please note that recipes may include use of nuts or dairy produce or ingredients containing gluten, and therefore please advise the admin office at the point of enrolment, and the tutor at the start of the session, if you are allergic to any ingredients.

What is the progression route?

Learners may like to enrol on future Inspired by Mexico courses or progress to other cookery courses.

What should students bring?

Notepad and pen

Teaching method/style?

My teaching style will encompass a combination of demonstration and hands-on practice as we work together to prepare each dish. There will be a focus on practising skills and techniques on how to prepare each ingredient and element of each dish and learners will receive as much group and one-to-one guidance as they need. As we bring the dishes together and sit down for a tasting lunch, learners will be encouraged to assess how the combination of flavours and textures work together, to add to their knowledge and learning of how to combine food for maximum impact.

Learners will be encouraged to assist each other and contribute to discussions - generating ideas and inspiration to use and develop the core recipes and ingredients to continue making and learning at home.
