Latin American Street Food cookery class (in person)

  Friday 11 Feb 2022

  6:00 pm  - 9:00 pm

In this class, chef Diego Ricaurte is your guide as you create a range of classic street food dishes from Colombia, Mexico and Ecuador – and turn up the heat with some accompanying salsas. You will learn about choosing quality meat for your dishes and about the mix of indigenous and Spanish flavours that influence Latin American cuisine.Diego Ricuarte chef

The menu includes:

  • Colombian arepas with carne mechada (corn patties served with pulled pork)
  • Mexican sopes de cochinilla pibil (tortillas filled with pulled pork)
  • Ecuadorean bolones de verde (green plantain and soft cheese balls) and frijoles, the classic and nutritious bean stew.
  • Accompanying salsas: aji Colombiano (cured chilli sauce with vinegar), aji de mani (peanut butter chilli sauce) and salsa verde (tomatillo green sauce).

Diego has a strong quality-over-quantity ethic, and the class will work with a robustly flavoured pork shoulder from the traditional rare-breed Middle White, sourced from Huntsham Farm, Herefordshire. All the dishes are gluten-free and designed to be recreated quickly at home for fun and healthy family meals.
