Mexican Cuisine

A gastronomic adventure around the main recipes and techniques of Mexican cuisine, declared as Intangible Heritage of Humanity by Unesco.

A half-breed gastronomy nourished by multiple influences

During this online course, we will travel around the basics of culinary Mexican culture.

The Mexican cuisine is a very tasty cuisine, with a great variety of dishes, techniques and ingredients. A cuisine, however, that cannot be even thought of without Corn. Corn is of the essence! The relevance of the tortilla as a dish per se and the variety of dishes that are prepared with corn, or along with corn is hard to believe.

We will start getting acquainted with the technique on how to treat the corn and be able to prepare a dough. We will cook a group of typical dishes of Mexican cuisine, starting with tortillas / totopos or doughs to prepare tamales. We will then prepare some of the typical sauces that go with tortillas or street food, essential for this gastronomy. We will also see how to cook two types of meat, specially the “Cochinita Pibil”, one of the most famous dishes in Mexican cuisine. And, last but not least, a good breakfast based on eggs and corn.

Paloma will explain the typical and essential ingredients of this cuisine, such as the different existing chilies and their use. Finally, we will see how all these dishes can be cooked in the traditional way, or using household appliances or any other equipment widely used in the gastronomy world, so that any professional in the world can cook it.

Very interesting!

I have found it very illustrative because it shows that there are not only tacos in Mexico and its gastronomy is much more extensive and very tasty.
