Beth hosts Weekend Cooking where you can post anything food related.
February 2014 - Mazatlan Mexico
We attended Salsa and Salsa today at the Royal Villas Resort. What a good time we had.
According to their website you will learn to make seven authentic salsas and two types of margaritas. You'll try your new culinary creations with quesadillas, taquitos and corn chips.
Hosted by two lovely ladies originally from Holland this is a fast-paced and interesting way to spend three hours.I "borrowed" their photos from their website.
Known as The Dancing Chefs they are much more than that. Leonique and Maaike are very community minded. They have Lela, the piggy bank, which they use to solicit donations and donate 100% of the funds raised to many international charities. You can learn more about Lela and the charities she has helped by clicking here.
I took these photos when we arrived, that is when everything was still tidy and before anyone had any margaritas.
As soon as we were attired in our chef's hats and aprons we were served our first margarita.
Our table companions from north (gasp) of Winnipeg.
Time to make our own margarita, easily the best tasting one we've ever had.
Jenny, from California helped make a water drink with watermelon -Aguas de Frutas. We learned that every restaurant makes their own fresh fruit blended waters from various fruits and vegetables. Leonique also suggested freezing the mixture to use as ice cubes.
First salsa was a traditional tomato salsa.
You always learn something new, a great way to seed a pepper without touching it.
Two "chefs' detailed to make a fiery chili for us all to sample.
John pounding the garlic, pepper and onions until it has the texture of apple sauce.
Sampling. I think John's was hotter.
We were provided with snacks as well.
OOPS four glasses toppled over!
We were given shots of this liqueur to pour over our ice cream dessert salsa.
I only provided a sampling of all the salsas we made. Time to learn to salsa!!
