Norteño cuisine is often mistaken for “Cal-Mex” or “Tex-Mex,” but it actually predates the current borders of the United States and can properly be thought of as a Mexican regional cuisine. In this class Gino Garcia will introduce you to the asada, which is both a menu and a type of event inspired by his family’s weekend gatherings — including carne asada (marinated and grilled flank steak) and frijoles charros (pink beans with Mexican chorizo and bacon). You’ll pile your plates high with all the fixings, including salsa tatemada (Sonoran-style roasted tomato salsa with chiles, onion, and lemon); cebollitas asadas (grilled spring onions); and from-scratch flour tortillas.
Please note: some classes can be adjusted for students with dietary restrictions, but many cannot.
