Apply new techniques that elevate traditional Mexican cuisine

What you'll learn

In this online course you will learn how to craft and execute a complete menu based on experience.

For the first course you will have a tostado free of gluten and corn and consisting of a tendon crisp. It is served with a bean marinade and guacamole.

We will continue with a bit of an Asian inspiration: an aguachile negro with citrus-cured fish and kombu seaweed. We’ll also have a vegetarian miso and epazote chileatole served with quelites.

You will find interesting creations and adaptations such as yeast butter, pistachio emulsion, and smoked-chilado jus.

The main course is unique. It consists of a short rib braised for several hours then shredded and finished with a crispy crust. It’s served with edible succulents and garnished with aioli.

Closing out the 6-course tasting menu is an ice cream enclosed inside a squash blossom that’s lightly fried in vodka tempura.

A lot of unnecessary information

So far I am disappointed with the courses I have seen so far. I expected it to learn a dish that I could create without waiting a week for something to pickle or using unique equipment.
