Summer Tex Mex & Cocktails

July 23 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


SOLD OUT- No worries, we’ll be posting another class soon! 🙂

Adults 21 and over only, please!

Tex Mex cuisine is perfect for summer! This food comes from the southern border of the United States, especially in areas that are heavily influenced by Mexican culture. It’s full of fresh, vibrant flavors that pair great with hot weather. In this class, we’ll talk about the differences in regional cuisines, and of course make some dynamite food. We’ll tackle some dishes such as: Grilled Corn Salad, Shrimp and Avocado Phyllo Cups, BBQ Chicken Quesadillas, Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers with Salsa Verde, Steak Tacos with Chimichurri, Chimichangas, Southwest Grilled Pasta Salad, flautas and more! Of course, we will also be serving up Watermelon Margaritas and other delicious cocktails! This is the kind of food you want to eat outside in the sunshine. Everything goes well with a Corona and Lime, and everything is made with fresh summer produce! Let’s enjoy the bounty of our limited summer months with a feast from our friends on the border!

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are no longer asking all students to wear a mask to class. If you have been vaccinated, you may choose to wear one, or not.  You of course, may wear a mask if you choose. We will be providing hand sanitizer at the door upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home. You may call to cancel your ticket with a two day or more notice, and we will issue a credit to be used on a future class.  No refunds. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.  Now that our county has moved to Tier 1, we can all enjoy our meal under The Cookery roof again! However, if you feel more comfortable taking all of our delicious foods home in a box, you can do that as well!  You will get a portion of each dish!

Please indicate the age of your child (children) for a child’s class in the comment sections so we can make sure that their recipes are age appropriate. Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. We will provide knives if you do not have them.  We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink. Byob.
