Hands on Grilling Mexican

Hands-On Regional Street Tacos on the Patio

Tacos, the unofficial national food of Mexico, are found on every street corner all over Mexico. In this hands-on grilling class, we’ll explore the regional flavors and ingredients that makes each taco unique to its birthplace, and prepare three very distinct and mouth-watering tacos from northern, central and coastal Mexico. Grilling classes take place outdoors on our patio. In case of inclement weather, class will be moved indoors and taught as a hands-on cooking class with an emphasis on using indoor grill pans.

  • Tacos de Carne Asada (Grilled Flank Steak) with Grilled Onions, Cilantro and Queso Fresco: North 
  • Al Pastor (Pork)-Inspired Tacos with Charred Jalapeño-Grilled Pineapple Salsa: Central 
  • Achiote Fish Tacos with Lime Crema, Red Cabbage and Grilled Avocados: Coast 
  • Elotes (Mexican Street Corn with Mayo, Lime, Chili and Cheese)

Skills covered in class: 

  • How to set up your grill
  • Selecting and grilling beef, pork and fish
  • Determining meat doneness
  • Working with fresh herbs and spices
  • Making marinades
  • Grilling vegetables
  • Balancing flavors

In this hands-on class, students will be paired in groups of three to five and work together as a team to prepare the recipes.
