Join us for a dinner where we do all the cooking! Each month we open the doors between our classrooms and seat 40 guests for a five-course family-style feast, featuring all the ingredients we’re excited about. This fall we’re teaming up with Gino Garcia to serve five colorful courses celebrating the Mexican sun and sea in all its fall harvest glory. It’s a big topic — Mexico’s coast stretches some 7,000 miles along the Caribbean and the Pacific — and Gino is highlighting his favorites from the wide array of regional flavors. Pricing includes tip, a wine pairing with each savory course, and tea or coffee with dessert.
