Sure, we were in Brooklyn and it was a cold winter’s eve, but nestled inside the Brooklyn Brewery last Wednesday night at How To Prepare a Mexican Feast, we might as well have been in Mexico…at least as far as our stomachs were concerned.
Tracie Lee and Wayne Surber of Lonestar Taco started off the evening by schooling us in the art of tortilla-making, corn and flour. Matt Burns of The Brooklyn Salsa Company showed us how to make assorted salsas (which we gobbled up at the bar with fresh tortilla chips). Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Fany Gerson of La Newyorkina taught us how to satisfy that sweet tooth with la boca negra, a decadent Mexican chocolate cake with the consistency of a brownie or a truffle. As a bonus, she shared with us La Newyorkina’s famous paletas, a Mexican version of a popsicle, in flavors like tamarind. And, of course, the Brooklyn Brewery beer just kept flowing. ¡Olé!
Thank you to all of our participants and guests for joining us!
