2012 Mexican Table Cooking Series with Patricia Jinich

  • Now in its 5th year, the 2012 Mexican Table Series will take place at the Mexican Cultural Institute on March 15, May 24, October 18 and December 6 at 6:30pm.
  • Each session includes a cooking demonstration, tasting dinner, music, recipes and an ingredient bag.

 The Mexican Table Cooking Series with Patricia Jinich is back for its fifth year!  Join us for this ongoing series of culinary adventures, as we travel through time, regions and topics surrounding you with Mexico's colors, flavors and hospitality! Each event will underscore why Traditional Mexican Cuisine was inducted to UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list in November of 2010 and will include an entertaining demonstration followed by a sumptuous dinner served with wine, beer and music. As a souvenir, you will take home recipes and some ingredients to get you started cooking at home. 

A Taste of the Maya World on October 18 will highlight the unique flavors of the Yucatan Peninsula, which boasts a cuisine so distinct from the rest of the country that it occupies its own universe of flavors. Explore how a pumpkin seed sauce can enhance regular enchiladas, savor Venison marinated in a bitter orange sauce and learn why there is a dessert called “poor gentleman” that can make anyone a wealthy patron.

Cost: $70, which includes a cooking demonstration, tasting dinner, music, recipes and ingredient bag.
