About this Event

See my website for valuable information prior to booking!

Austinites are as much about our Mexican cuisine as we are about our barbecue. We unabashedly love our Tex-Mex and are constantly leaning on, and inspired by, dishes brought to us by our brothers and sisters from just over the border. We would not be who we are without their influence.

Here we celebrate the vibrant food culture of Mexico with dishes inspired by its flavors, but incorporating adapted recipes for the American home kitchen.

Create a guacamole, made more substantial with a variety of complimentary additions. Then we will make a traditional fried queso dish, toasty and simple, brightened up with a squeeze of fresh lime. Both of which is served with puffy, flash fried street tortillas.

Prepare a traditional elote, or Mexican street corn, only, fire charred for extra flavor, served off-the-cob, and drizzled with ancho crema aioli.

Then learn to oven roast chicken thighs, (chef’s cut of choice, for their juice and flavor, over literally any other part of the bird,) until crispy perfection. Swim your chicken in a creamy chipotle lime sauce and wilted spinach greens.

And finally, finish with cream cheese mousse, in a flash “sopapilla” and sweet honey drizzle.

And then of course, sit, and enjoy your carefully crafted meal.
