Chef Kait and Chef Ashley are at it again – traveling abroad and bringing back lots of beautiful pictures, tips and tricks for us who remain stateside. Recently they traveled to La Villa Bonita in Tepotzlan Mexico where they took part in a “Culinary Vacation” with famed Chef Ana Garcia. There they took private culinary classes with Chef Garcia and a small group and learned about things such as salsas, chiles, masa, tortillas, and so much more.
The above pictures show things such as the open markets – similar to our farmers markets but theirs are every day – enchiladas, quesadillas, salsa prep, tortillas, the village, and more.
Chef Kait and Chef Ashley are so excited to teach our upcoming Viva Mexico class on March 10th featuring highlights from their trip and tour. Our Tasting Dinner this month, on March 13th, was also inspired by their trip. Unlike any other tasting dinner we’ve done before, this will feature an a la carte menu or guests can choose a 5 course “Trust the Chef” tasting.
Upon her return Chef Kait says, “We were so honored to learn about authentic Mexican cuisine from Chef Ana Garcia this past week in La Villa Bonita. Everything from her detailed descriptions of dried chiles to demonstrations of how to hand make fresh corn tortillas has deeply impacted our culinary perspective and we can’t wait to share it with our clients of Easy Entertaining.”
