The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership's Community Kitchen is a cookery school where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food with others. We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying for a cookery class, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.
Delight your friends and family with an array of vibrant dishes from central and south America.
In this class, chef Diego Ricaurte is your guide as you create a range of classic street food dishes from Colombia, Mexico and Ecuador. You will learn about choosing quality meat for your dishes and about the mix of indigenous and Spanish flavours that influence Latin American cuisine.
You will work in pairs to create a menu which typically includes dishes such as:
- Handmade arepas (corn patties) or tortillas for tacos
- Fillings such as chicharron (crispy pork), cochinita (slow-roasted pork) or fried prawn (depending on season/ availability)
- With sides such as refried black beans and a range of flavourful salsas
Diego has a strong quality-over-quantity ethic working closely with small local farmers, fishermen, and food suppliers to use high quality meat and fresh ingredients. All the dishes are gluten-free and designed to be recreated quickly at home for fun and healthy family meals.
Dietary information: The menu for this class is gluten-free, however, please note that we cannot guarantee the kitchen is a fully gluten-free environment. The menu may involve cooking with nuts. For any other allergies or dietary requirements, please contact us to discuss before booking.
