Southwest Twist on a PNW Dinner
Join Chef Cody Castiglia in this hands-on class, where we will pair the exciting and unique flavors of the Southwest with the vast and incredible bounty available here in the Northwest. Southwestern cuisine draws influence from Spain, Mexico, Native Americans, and makes for a delicious fusion of flavors. Chef Cody will teach you how to master the SW flavor infusion that works with all of the wonders of the PNW.
Let Chef Cody guide you through the steps as you create a beautiful meal of:
Dungeness Crab Cakes with Charred Poblano Crema;
Chile De Arbol Braised Chicken Thighs;
Chipotle Marinated Flank Steak and Handmade Corn Tortillas;
“Borracho Beans” with Queso Fresco;
Roasted Summer Squash in a Pumpkin Seed Mole; and
Theo’s Chocolate Flan with Dulce de Leche and Seasonal Fruit
All to be enjoyed with delicious wine!
