Welcome to our cozy kitchen!
We’ll be making a delicious Mexican dinner together. Everyone roll up your sleeves!
We’ll spend the first part of class cooking dinner and the last 30 minutes enjoying a delicious dinner together. Tamales take about 90 minutes to steam so this cooking party is 2.5 hours long.
We’ll be creating a special menu from Mexico without the most common food allergens.
Making everything on the menu from scratch will ensure we know what’s going in our food!


Black Bean + Sweet Potato Tamales and Green Chile Chicken Tamales
We’ll make the tamale dough (no lard in ours) and then, using corn husks, form the tamales for the steamer! Kids can help with this and it’s lots of fun.
(Made from Masa Harina - tamales are naturally wheat free)

Mexican Street Corn (Elotes) Salad
Corn salad with all the toppings for elotes make this a delicious twist on a summer treat.
(Cojita cheese on the side and we’ll use vegan, soy free mayo)

Spanish Rice + Refried Beans
Kids love this rice studded with veggies and sofrito. Refried beans are a fave, too, and fun to mix up.

Salsa Verde + Chipotle Salsa
We’ll make our own salsas using Tomatillos and other ingredients that might be new to kiddos! They will love making them and trying them on the tamales.

Baked Churro Donuts with Chocolate Ganache
These cinnamon covered donuts are so delicious - especially with a drizzle of rich chocolate!
(We’ll be using Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 flour and subbing dairy and egg, as well)
