Event description

Description

Chile peppers are one of Mexico’s greatest contribution to global cuisine; indigenous to the New world, they have become an integral part of culinary traditions around the world. Mexican cuisine takes full advantage of the amazing variety of fresh, dried, and smoked chiles, as much for their unique flavours as for their tantalizing heat.

Come explore the incredible diversity and versatility of Mexican chiles with chef Paola Solorzano from Santo Pecado Mexican Catering. You’ll discover the flavours and unique characteristics of fresh chiles, such as jalapeño, serrano, poblano, and habanero, dried chiles like ancho, guajillo, pasilla, piquin, morita and arbol, and smoked chiles like chipotle. The class will show you how to identify chiles, understand the relationships between them, and explore a variety of chile based recipes.

Together in class you will make a mixed chile dry rub for grilled chicken, cooked red (roja) and green (verde) salsas, and a fresh tomato and serrano raw salsa (pico de gallo). You’ll then grill the chicken and use the salsas to make traditional chilaquiles rojo and verde. Once familiar with the flavour profiles of the different chiles, participants will get to design their own dry rub spice to take home.
