A revolutionary way to understand Mexican cuisine through chili peppers and their culinary components
Mexican dried chiles have tremendous culinary uses in traditional Mexican cuisine, yet they have been lost or forgotten over time.
This online course demonstrates how to use 100% of the dried chile and its components. Mexican dried chiles are considered the “Sixth Taste” for their flavors, aromas, colors, and textures. To maximize their potential, Lalo Plascencia designed the Oteiza System for cleaning and roasting dried chiles.
Starting with 2 basic preparations: corn broth and adobo madre, we will be able to prepare 8 Mexican recipes adapted by Lalo Plascencia.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
– extract and enhance all the parts of a dried chili pepper to be used for various applications.
– understand the flavors and aromas that chili peppers have beyond just their spiciness.
– make your own adobos to give a signature touch to your Mexican dishes.
