South American food combines big bold flavors and the comfort of home cooking. Try something new in this class! It's going to be a busy one as we cook four South American inspired dishes that make an awesome summer meal. Plantains, Beef Skirt Steak, Grilled Corn, and Black Beans are all on the menu.
Cooking at your own cooktop you'll learn everything you need to know to recreate this dis hat home. We'll start with Tostones, or twice-fried plantains with a garlic dipping sauce. If you've never had fried plantains, you don't know what you're missing! For the second course we've got three pieces that all have a ton of flavor. A dry spice rubbed and grilled skirt steak, elotes a.k.a. Mexican grilled sweet corn with a rich and savory topping, and stewed black beans flavored with garlic, onions, and cumin.
Seriously, this is one of those meals so comforting you'll want to spend the rest of the day just relaxing in the shade, sipping margaritas.
