Today after our wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt ,orange juice ,
coffee and mango omelets - we went up the street just a few blocks to
Pilar’s Cooking School “La Casa de los Sabores”. What a absolute treat
for us. There was only one other student, Lucy from NYC, and we all got
along like peas in a pod. First off we went to the little market not too far
away and purchased all the items we would need.
Our menu today was:
Squash Blossoms filled with Requeson Cheese
Salsa Verde - smoky tomatillo sauce
Tortilla Soup seasoned with Avocado leaves
Poblano chilies filled with chicken in a nut sauce
and Coconut Flan
I will be happy to share all the recipes once we get back!
Pilar was a great teacher and we all had a good experience making all the
dishes together. After we were done cooking-we sat down and had a delicious meal!
