  • Learn To Cook Real Mexican Food

    I am located in Los Angeles, CA. I offer affordable cooking classes. The cooking classes are taught in English and Spanish, and in small groups. Please, if you want to learn how to cook real Mexican food, call me or message me on my Facebook: Maria Cook. Aprender a cocinar comida mexicana auténtica! Enviar un e-mail o un mensaje a mi Facebook. También, aprender a cocinar postres tradicionales mexicanos y pasteles. The history of Mexican food is a long and diverse one. It is believed that authentic Mexican food might have been derived from the Mayan Indians. They were traditionally nomadic hunters and gatherers. Corn tortillas with bean paste were a common food item, but they also ate wild game, tropic fruits, and fish. In the mid-1300s, the Aztec Empire was thriving, and though the Mayan food staples were still in use, chili peppers, honey, salt and chocolate found their way into their cooking. Some of the wild game, such as turkey and duck, had now become domesticated. In 1521, Spain invaded Mexico. Spanish foods had the most influence on the Mexican cuisine. They introduced new livestock, such as sheep, pigs and cows. They brought with them dairy products, and garlic as well as many different herbs, wheat and spices. It was at this time that the Mexican people saw the assimilation of many other cuisines including Caribbean, South American, French, West African and Portuguese. Because of this, Mexican foods today are diverse, yet dishes vary from region to region.

  • Black Cat Culinary

    (1 reviews)

    I specialize in backstage/tour catering, unique dinner parties, customized cooking classes, offbeat weddings, and special events. I treat food as an experience rather than simply sustenance, and I love incorporating unusual ingredients or preparations into my food. My food tends to have a subtle to heavy Latin influence because of the time I spent living in South America, and a worldly flair from things I've picked up while traveling - but as a native midwesterner, I can certainly excel at simple comfort food as well! I am reasonable with pricing and will always send you an estimate detailing where the cost comes from. I can go as simple or as complicated as you want - from just me on a small party to a full staff with rentals.
