18 OCTOBER 2012
6:30 - 9:00 pm

Cooking demonstration and tasting dinner at the Mexican Cultural Institute.

The Yucatan Peninsula is known as the culinary outlier in Mexico because it 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.

Hola Pati !

Hay un oportunidad que Ud. visitaré San Francisco, CA en 2012 o 2013?
Mis amigas y yo quisiéramos tomar una clase de cocina con usted.

I recently vacationed in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, and enjoyed their cuisine. I had a salbute with a spicy red pork topping reminds me of cochinita pibil or what I know it as asado de puerco. Those were delicious reminded me of a gorditas very common in South Texas. Will you have any episodes of that cuisine of Mexico?

Ricardo Hernandez | October 8, 2012 4:50 PM

Yes, absolutely, I'm planning on it. You know, Ricardo, the cuisine from Yucatán is so unique from the rest of Mexico.
