Holy Mole! An upcoming La Cocina workshop

Do you love Mexican food and want to sharpen your culinary skills? Then you'll want to check out this upcoming event hosted by La Cocina called Holy Mole! During this culinary workshop, La Cocina entrepreneurs Isabel Caudillo of El Buen Comer and VerĂ³nica Salazar of El Huarache Loco,  will be featuring one of Mexico's most popular dishes - mole.

After years as a street vendor and caterer, Salazar was the first La Cocina entrepreneur to launch at a farmer’s market and later the first La Cocina graduate to open a brick and mortar restaurant, El Huarache Loco - located in the Marin County Mart. Caudillo, an old friend of Salazar’s and her former kids’ babysitter, joined La Cocina in 2007 after years of running a restaurant from her home.  Now, Caudillo caters frequently, sells regularly from Noe Valley Farmer’s Market, and produces all the breadsticks sold at the standout Mission restaurant Delfina.

Mole, a traditional Mexican sauce, is often comprised of over 26 ingredients and it's preparation begins with one or more types of chili pepper. According to legend, colonial-era nuns created the dish but recipes didn’t appear until after the Mexican War of Independence in 1810. Today, it remains one of the most popular and representative dishes of Mexico.

On the heels of Mexican Independence Day on September 15, Salazar and Caudillo are excited to share Mexico’s national dish with an American audience.  During the class, attendees will also enjoy Mexican appetizers, beer, wine, and other beverages.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday, Sept 18th from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m. at La Cocina. Tickets can be purchased here.
