Hampden - Cooking for Cinco de Mayo

Cooking for Cinco de Mayo – Hampden Academy

Don Katnick

Do you avoid celebrating Cinco de Mayo because your Mexican culinary skills are limited to tacos? Do homemade tamales, avocado soup, and Mexican rice sound better? Traditional tamales are intimidating. Cooking with corn husks discourages people and it is unnecessary! In this class, you’ll learn an easier way to make great-tasting tamales. Avocado soup is a less well-known, but very easy and tasty side dish to prepare. And the Mexican rice is just a throw-in; you’ll already have some of the ingredients on-hand and it’s really easy, so why not? This will be a two-night, hands-on class. Cooking stations will be limited, so students will work in groups of 2-3 (sign up with a friend!) with a total limit of 12 students. Each class will be 2 hours long. The first night will cover the avocado soup, the Mexican rice, and the tamale filling. Then we’ll stuff, steam, and serve the tamales on the second night.

Mondays, March 20 & 27         6 – 8 pm

Course fee: $27

Materials fee: $22 paid directly to the instructor at the time of the class (Cash or Check Only)
