Because I am French most people expect me to blog about French food. Sorry to disappoint but as delicious as it is, my view is I would be missing out if I was to limit myself to cooking only French food. If you’ve been around here for a while, you would know that I love most cuisines! I love food and I love to experiment with it. Moroccan, Italian, Spanish, Indian….you name it, I make it! While I have not yet traveled to Mexico (it’s on the bucket list), over the years, I have developed a deep love for Mexican cuisine. Since returning from a trip to San Francisco earlier this year, I caught myself always being on the look out for carnitas tacos and delicious burritos!
A few weeks ago, I got to experiment with Mexican food as I took a Mexican Street Food Cooking Class at Victor’s Food, in Waterloo, Sydney. In the comfort of his own beautiful apartment, Victor, a passionate and experienced chef, offers the largest range of cooking classes in Sydney.
What we made
- Achiote Barbecued Chicken (tortilla topping)
- Barbecued Corn with Chipotle Mayonnaise
- Roasted Corn Tamales
- Black Bean Ragout (tortilla topping)
- Guacamole (tortilla topping)
- Fire-Roasted Salsa (tortilla topping)
- Tomatillo Salsa (tortilla topping)
What I love about the Mexican Street Food Cooking Class
