Since Angie can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!
Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!
In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Angie will guide you through making several of Angie's vegetarian family recipes. You'll start building your tostadas from the ground up by deep-frying corn tortillas. Then you'll learn how to make a tasty pot of blended black beans - no pre-soaking required! Next, Angie will show you how to make a duo of tasty toppings - a beautiful salsa roja and a smooth, tart crema. All will be assembled with shredded lettuce, sliced avocado, and grated queso blanco. Finally, you'll prepare esquites (corn kernels in broth cooked with onions and herbs, served in a cup and topped with lime juice, mayo, cotija cheese, and cayenne pepper). This meal can easily be made vegan.

I felt very comfortable in Angie's home, and she was very welcoming. I truly believed her when she said we were welcome back any time. She was also a great cooking teacher! Explaining each part, and adding various facts and tidbits as the night went on. It was evident how much she equated food and love. And everything tasted AMAAAAAAAAZIIIINNNGGGG.”
