Virtual Cooking Class with Food Tripping Mexico: The Origins of Maize
Back by popular demand, Wayang Kitchen and Flavors of Mexico are coming together yet again to take you on an exciting journey on how to prepare authentic enchiladas using one of Mexico's most popular gifts to the world - Maize or better known as corn!
Food Tripping Mexico: The Origins of Maize - a virtual cooking class that celebrates the journey of corn and how it plays a pertinent part in Mexican culture.
Originating from Mexico, maize was once valued more than gold by the Mayan, Aztec and Olmec civilization. In fact, when the Spanish arrived in search of gold, they were pointed in the direction of corn as the usage of this unique plant was far more valuable in their way of life. Today, this ingredient is used worldwide and is still used (and loved!) by Mexicans today - which is why you're invited to discover how to cook with it!
What will we learn to cook?
Esquites - A popular street snack in Mexico, the word esquites comes from the Nahuatl word ízquitl, which means "toasted corn". Unlike your typical corn in the cup, this tasty dish is served with mayonnaise with a hint of lime!
Enchiladas Divorciadas - Made with fried corn tortillas stuffed with chicken, the unique aspect about this dish is the salsa roja and salsa verde which marries itself perfectly (despite the meaning of the dish to be the opposite!). Topped with vegan sour cream and a hint of corn, this dish is the perfect dish to have to celebrate maize!
All meal kits will come with our complimentary snack - Corn chips with chipotle mayo dip!
So, who are you cooking with?
Meet your chef, Ivan.
Having grown up in a family-owned restaurant, Ivan's passion for the food and beverage industry was a natural progression towards a career in gastronomy.
Hailing from Puebla, Mexico - the region is known for famous dishes such as Mole Poblano, Chiles en Nogado, Chalupas and more! As a kid, Ivan and his family would travel far and wide to discover the flavors of Mexico which is what sparked his desire to share his cuisine far, far away from his home.
Specializing in Mediterranean and Mexican cuisine, Ivan has gained international working experience at world-famous restaurants like La Sucursal in Valencia, Spain to Motel Mexicola in Bali, Indonesia.
