The Secrets of Salsa

Want another culinary trick up your sleeve? Take ~THE SECRETS OF SALSA: A GUIDED TOUR THROUGH MEXICO'S CULINARY FOUNDATIONS~ at La Cocina and learn how to make real authentic salsa. Chefs from La Cocina will talk participants through four stations that begin with an introduction to the basics of salsa making—all of these salsas are designed to complement summer cooking.

Culinary director Jason Rose will walk participants through an outdoor cooking/grilling refresher course that will begin with tips on getting the perfect grill marks and end with a perfectly cooked protein (be it beef, chicken, or seafood) to go with the salsas. There will also be summer cocktails, and the event will wrap with a delicious sit-down dinner paired with wines.

The chefs include Dilsa Lugo of Los Cilantros and Veronica Salazar of El Huarache Loco. tablehopper readers get $20 off the $110 ticket price, and a large portion of the ticket is tax-deductible.
