Cooking demonstration and tasting dinner at the Mexican Cultural Institute.
Asian demographic influence has a long and storied past in Mexico: Filipinos came through the Pacific trade on huge Galleons, Chinese communities worked to build Mexican railroads, and Japanese settlers found work on coffee plantations. Mexico’s culinary heritage is no stranger to this influence—dishes have benefited from their steaming, drying and salting techniques, as well as the spices. Join me as I explore the heritage of Asian cuisine in Mexico through dishes like Dried Shrimp Soup, Green Beans with Salted Peanuts and Chile de Arbol, Mexican-style Mongolian Beef, Spicy Tofu, and Sticky Rice Playero.
