Ever wonder why Mexican food is so popular these days? Ever think about how ergonomic a taco is? What is it about that beef skirt steak or fajita that makes it taste so good?
Laredo can help answer these questions and so much more, because one of the culinary secrets of well prepared and delicious Mexican food is found at the bottom of a molcajete. Learn about this pestle and mortar culinary prep tool at a special immersive experience, hosted along Laredo’s famed San Bernardo Avenue and in conjunction with its merchants association, at Vega’s Interiores Mejicanos at 4002 San Bernardo Ave. This traditional set of tools has been used for generations in Latino food preparation and this course takes you through traditional and unconventional ways to use the molcajete. Offered on the first Saturday of the month, each class begins at 3:00 p.m. or earlier (based on the weather) on the patio at Vega’s and costs $25.00 per participant. Each person receives an hour and half of instruction, a light meal, beverages and a take home memento; reservations may be made by calling Sandra R. Taylor at 956.645.2512.
