Exploring Mexico’s North: Chihuahua

11 OCTOBER 2018 | 6:45 PM
Mexican Cultural Institute, Washington, DC

Cooking Demo and Tasting Dinner
Although Mexico’s northern states are closer to the US, ironically not many people are familiar with the gastronomy from Mexico’s North. In this session, you will take a deep dive into one of Mexico’s biggest northern states, one which boasts its unique cuisine and dearly beloved dishes: Chihuahua! From a Sopa de Ajo, to a true Mexican burrito de Chile Colorado, to the very famous Discada, and a sweet taste of their signature crisp apple buñuelos.
