My wife and I, along with another couple, signed up for the Thursday class. Enrique and Bruno met us right on time and took us to the Mercado Palmar de Aramara, where we visited the tortilla factory (picking up dough for later), snacked on tacos, and shopped for the groceries we would need. Enrique gave a very detailed explanation of how to select the best and freshest fish and produce. Squash blossoms were available, and he took us back into the market's cooler to find the freshest blossoms for a soup he planned to make.
Once at Enrique's house we got down to business, helping put together the squash blossom soup, pork pibil (cooked in banana leaves), a zucchini side dish, and salsa and guacamole. Those who wanted to could taste mezcal and tequila while we were cooking, and when the pibil wasn't quite ready Enrique brought out the blender and made margaritas!
The meal was delicious, the environment very homey and hospitable, and the knowledge that Enrique passed on was both interesting and detailed. We would definitely take another class from Cookin' Vallarta!
