When Spanish settlers arrived in the new world they observed Aztecs eating all kinds of foods “on the go”, including corn on the cob, popcorn, tamales and various fillings wrapped in a tortilla. Since then the burrito has become one of the indispensable American take out foods; peel away its foil wrapper and eat it on the go or carry it home and dig into it using a fork and knife, either way it satisfies all the needs of a hassle free dinner: convenience, versatility, and deliciousness. But most people are unaware of its other great trait: simplicity. The trickiest and most intimidating part of constructing your own burrito is rolling it so that you get a nice, tight wrap that doesn’t fall apart when you take a bite or cut into it. In our “Modern Burrito” class, we’ll use locally sourced, seasonal ingredients to make a variety of fillings and sauces and you’ll learn all the techniques you need to construct the perfect burrito. After a little practice, you’ll be able whip up a meal yourself fast and easy! Also, for dessert you’ll learn how to make baked churros and a tasty sauce. And, of course, no fiesta would be complete without a refreshing beverage, which is why we will mix up some tasty homemade “orange” soda!
