Cooking Class: Mamacita and Mocel Mezcal Pairing
There is a Mexican saying that goes "Para todo mal, mezcal; y para todo bien, también" (For everything bad, there is mezcal; and for everything good, aswell).
Join Mamacita author Andrea Pons, and Mocel Mezcal owner Rosalinda Mendoza for this hands-on class that will dig into what makes a good mezcal, its cultural impact in Mexico and beyond, and how to pair it with traditional Mexican food. Prepare for a night filled with traditional techniques, family stories, and lots of bold flavor!
Working from her favorite family recipes, Andrea will walk you through how to make Ceviche Veracruzano (Veracruz-style ceviche) with edible flowers; Tostadas de Nopales ( Cactus Tostadas) in a bed of Salsa Negra; and homemade refried beans. Rosalinda will talk through how to pair each dish with Mocel Mezcal. To finish, you will roll Chocolate Truffles and wash them down with a M&M cocktail (Mezcal and Amaro).
Class is limited to 11 people and is hands-on. Includes dinner. Each student will leave with a couple of chocolate truffles.
