Enjoy an evening of Mexican food and culture
Calling all foodies! You are invited to a one-off dinner showcasing Mexican food, ingredients, techniques and recipes. Chefs Rodrigo Quirarte and Luis Guajardo will share the cultural history of each dish and explain how traditional food relates to everyday contemporary life. From abuela’s (grandma’s) home cooking through to sampling some street-food specialities – you’ll get to experience it all.

Family-style taquiza served with salsas and toppings, with stacks of tortillas for a DIY taco experience featuring:
Cochinita pibil – Pork shoulder in an achiote adobo, wrapped in banana leaves and roasted
Tinga de nopal – Tender Mexican cactus cooked in an orange and smoked chipotle sauce
Puerco en salsa verde – Slow-cooked pork in tomatillo salsa
Picadillo de lentejas – Lentil and veggie stew in a tomato and cumin sauce
Frijoles puercos refritos – A classic refried pinto bean puree with Mexican spices

Everyone will receive a little souvenir of the night – a detailed recipe for Mexico’s much-loved margarita.
