Bienvenidos a la cocina! These classes will focus on the simple, rustic flavours that are making authentic Mexican cuisine New Zealand’s hottest food trend. A variety of staples will be featured including homemade tortillas, tamales and chilli rellenos made from Otahuna’s own chilli peppers – one of Jimmy’s signature dishes which features in Otahuna’s forthcoming book, For the Love of a Place: The stories and cuisine of Otahuna due September 2015.
