Cooking demonstration and tasting dinner at the Mexican Cultural Institute.

In December, festivities in Mexico usually include Piñatas, Pozole and Ponche.  You will learn the history behind the piñata tradition while savoring two of the most popular versions of Pozole throughout Mexico:  Green from Guerrero and Red from Jalisco.  A whole meal on a plate, Pozole is one of Mexico's most well-known and loved dishes.  Accompanying dessert will be a mug of sweet Ponche, a warm and delicious concoction made with sugar cane sticks and both fresh and dried fruits.

I viewed your show for the first time and Immediately became a fan. Gracias, Tere

Pati - I love your show on WETA Create! Your cooking is so simple and easy to follow and your personality makes me want to run to the kitchen to cook. I love Mexico and Mexican food. I have friends from Oaxaca who will be visiting in December but too late to see you at the Pozole and Ponche event. However, I am going to try to attend with some other friends. Until then keep cooking and teaching us the wonders of real, homestyle cocina mexicana.
You're the best!

Pati, I watched your show yesterday and fell in love with the little Garibaldis you made. My daughters are adopted from Guatemala. There are limited shows on about Guatemalan cooking and recipes, but I feel my girls would love these...Guatemalan or not. I've decided to add the Garibaldis to our Thanksgiving Day menu! Love your show!

Do you have any suggestion on how to prepare a Caribbean Ham.
Some one in the grocery store told me to trim the fat, then use:
Honey, Brown Sugar, Grenadine and Rum then sear the meat and poke poke poke poke and bast with the sauce . . .Do yo have any suggestion for Caribbean Ham

Hi Pati, Thank you for a great pozole dinner on Dec 8th. My husband and I enjoyed it immensely.
I got a little misty eating the bunuelos, as those had been my father's favorite. The taste brought back good memories. Thanks again for giving me a sample of epazote. Now I know what flavor it imparts.
We love your TV show and are looking forward to more classes in 2012!

Thank you so much for coming Marian! I'm happy I could bring back good memories and remind you of your father. Hope to see you at the next class :)
