Parties That Cook has teamed up with Epicurean Concierge, Lisa Rogovin, to bring you an in-depth culinary adventure set in San Francisco's famous Mission District where the traditional and often lusty Latino and South American flavors are a part of a changing community of various backgrounds and cultures.
Bring your appetite and a bottle of water and meet your guides at Mr. Pollo for the first half of the event - an exciting culinary tour of the Mission. Tour stops may include Wise Sons Deli, delicious freshly baked mini cupcakes from Mission Minis, authentic tacos from El Farolito, and award-winning ice cream from Humphry Slocombe. Finally, stop into Mexican market, La Palma Foods, where you'll see some of the ingredients you'll later learn to cook with. TOUR STOPS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
The moving tour ends in the kitchen at La Cocina, a business incubator that cultivates low-income food entreŽpreŽneurs as they forŽmalŽize and grow their busiŽnesses by proŽvidŽing affordŽable comŽmerŽcial kitchen space, industry-specific techŽniŽcal assisŽtance and access to marŽket opporŽtuŽni-ties. You'll then join the Parties That Cook chefs for an exciting hands-on cooking class featuring the exotic flavors of the Mission. Enjoy a lively introductory cooking demo featuring tips such as the fastest way to dice an onion without a tear. Then, break into teams and learn to prepare recipes from the day's Latin-inspired small plates menu, all while listening to upbeat music. When the cooking is over, you'll savor the 'fruits' of your labor hot from the oven!
