A Crespo Organic Kitchen Cooking Class
Class Description: This is a very special class to cap off Mango Mania, where we’ll make our favorite Mexican street drink – the Mangonada – and all its components from scratch, including Homemade Chamoy and Tamarindo Candy Straws. Bright orange mango sorbet with chamoy rippled throughout and topped with fresh mangoes. The mangonada is a summertime staple in Mexican communities and the Crespo Organic Kitchen is going to take a stab at making it from scratch, right along side you!
We will make the chamoy from scratch—a savory, lightened pickeld condiment made from dried stone fruit. We will even make our own house Tajín seasoning (a lime-flavored chili powder). And the signature candy tamarind straw too, we wont forget to make that too!
Most of the stuff you’d buy from the store today is so laden with salt, sugars, processed-everything that we want to recreate this incredible treat the old way (which is also the healthier, fresh way).
Recipes to be Made: Mango & Lime Sorbet; Homemade Chamoy; Crespo (Faux) Tajín; Tamarind Candy Straws
