June 24th: Virtual Cooking Class with a Professional Chef

The first of four dining experiences will be a virtual cooking class with a professional chef. You will have the chance to submerge yourself in the authentic Mexican street food culture with a step-by-step taco cooking class!

This virtual experience will be hosted by a trained professional chef, Gaby, who will be live on Zoom, all the way from Mexico City! Chef Gaby will walk us through the process of preparing traditional red salsa, taco filling, and flour tortillas. At the end of the class, you will have eight 6″ tacos for you and your family to enjoy. These tacos will feed 2-3 people total.

Chef Gaby will join us live from Mexico City!

You will receive the ingredients and a list of utensils needed for this class, as well as the link to join the Zoom session on June 24th from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. During the class, you will prepare a tomato salsa to be eaten with the tacos, taco filling – ground beef or mushrooms for vegetarians – and homemade flour tortillas.

There are two cost options for this session:

$40 per person

You will be sent the ingredients list and will be responsible for purchasing the ingredients needed for the cooking.  You will need to prepare your ingredients by chopping them and setting them aside, prior to the session’s start. There will not be time to chop them while the session is ongoing!

$70 per person

Our team will do the shopping, prep the food and deliver it ready to be cooked, to your door in time for the cooking class.  This is only available for guests who are local to Guelph. Have a large family? For $90, you can choose to double your ingredient list and make 12 tacos to feed 6 people.
