Mexican Hands on Cooking Class

I love sharing cooking tips and new recipes with cooking enthusiasts and the best place to do that is in one of my cooking classes. This past year I taught my first hands on class. If you have a passion for cooking and you’re interested in a fast paced environment you would totally love this class. I had a great time watching the class participants create their own version of my recipes. Amazingly each of the 4 teams came up with something a little different even though they all had the same recipe. Wow factor. How could that happen and what did that tell me about how people interpret directions.

It says that slice, dice and chop are pretty vague terms and sauté, simmer and steam could mean stir fry and boil to a novice chef. So I quickly realized I needed to sharpen my own skills and so I did. The results were rewarding. Each person brought their own level of skills and each team turned out delicious dishes and that equals success for any cooking instructor.

See my recipes and their happy faces and yummy results.
