Copy of Mexican Essentials: Tortillas y Salsa

  • Finca tres Robles 257 N. Greenwood Houston, TX 77011 (map)

Craving grandma's flour tortillas? Want to impress your friends with a breathtaking salsa? The title of neighborhood taco queen or king is yours to take after this hands on, taco eating experience. Learn the intricacies of tortilla dough. Marvel at the different methods of layering your salsa with flavor.

The class will be taught by Cesar Cano, a culinary graduate, retired line cook, English teacher, and reluctant writer. He was a finalist on Gordon Ramsay’s cooking competition MasterChef in 2018. Cesar is also the owner of Taque_Son PopUp Dining, a concept he is recently describing as performance art since all food is prepared in front of guests seconds before it is consumed. He cherishes the act of creating and sharing dishes with others. His cooking style captures his Mexican heritage, and the myriad of flavors found in Houston’s eclectic food scene accentuate his version of Mexican dishes. His weapon of choice is the taco and he holds monthly taco tastings in his home.
