Just as when these cooking classes commenced more than 13 years ago, EL ARRAYÁN will continue to include traditional dishes such as ceviches, moles, tamales, fresh salsas, and desserts.

The classes will introduce participants to different types of chiles, as well as ingredients that are easily available in the US and Canada. During this culinary experience, Carmen and Diego will provide attentive individual guidance while sharing cultural and historical ingredient & recipe knowledge of traditional Mexican cuisine with each person. They will help every participant has the skills and confidence to cook like a professional chef back home!

All classes will show you how to properly hold a knife, professional chopping techniques complete with knife skills, how to identify various Mexican peppers, to clean your hands of strong-smelling food & other useful tips.
