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.

Drop off your kids ages 6 to 12 for a corn workshop. Kids will learn about the history, legends, properties and uses of corn, make their own puppets out of corn husks and make their own corn masa. They will then assemble and eat dishes made with the corn masa, such as tostadas and quesadillas. They will leave with their puppet, a packet of kid friendly recipes and Mexican handcrafted toys.
