Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day -- but it does mark the brilliant Mexican military triumph over Napoleon III's invasion force on May 5th, 1962. The defeat hampered the French to such an extent that they could no longer provide help to the American Confederate cause, which certainly contributed to its downfall the following year. Plenty to celebrate, north and south of the border!
In collaboration with Chef de Cuisine Alfredo Solis, we will demonstrate the preparation of four dishes from the Cinco de Mayo tasting menu.
