As part of Crespo Organic Summer Mango Mania, Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center, in conjunction with the Crespo Organic Kitchen, are hosting a  Mexico and mango-centric hands on cooking class at New Leaf Community Market in Santa Cruz California.

Come join us! Summertime screams mango. As the Mexican mango season blossoms in the peak of our summer, we begin to crave more and more of this sweet, perfumy fruit. Despite mango being the most widely consumed fruit in the world, it is one of the most intimidating in our kitchens. This hands-on class takes the pressure off, teaching the basics and beyond of all things mango while celebrating the authentic food and flavors of Mexico. Instructor Chef Nissa Pierson, mango aficionado will provide the basic need to know advice and techniques for all things mango. How to choose, store, cut and use. The menu for the class combines some of Mexico’s most dominant flavors while keeping it simple and cooling, which the peak of summer demands.

Recipes:Tropical Mango Ceviche, Crespo Sinaloa Sauce, Avocado Mango Pico de Gallo, Chipotle-Mango Carnitas Tacos, Zucchini White Bean Corn Tacos,  Lime Pickled Red Onions, Sweet corn Mango Strawberry Cupcakes,  Frozen Mango Lime Agua Fresca With Mango Pit Syrup

Class Type: Individual, hands-on cooking class

Class Notes: Make authentic Mexican dishes that are mango-centric
