Class Experience

I LOVE to cook and even worked in a few NYC restaurant kitchens after high of which was a local Tex-Mex place. I have prepared tamales and their counterparts with locals in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Ecuador, as well as here in NY.

The student will need to purchase a number of specialty foods.

Masa Harina (This product MUST say masa harina - no other type of flour works)
Chicken Thighs
Can of Tomatoes (or 2 - 3 medium whole tomatoes)
Crushed Red Pepper
Chile Seco or Chile Guajillo
Dried Corn Husks or Banana Leaves
Chicken Broth
Epazote or Hoja Santa (optional)
Vegetable Shortening/ Olive Oil/ or Pork Fat

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The children will very likely need some assistance. They will also need to either boil chicken, or have cooked chicken to work with.
