Comida en la Ciudad

Tuesday, February 6, 12:00 P.M. | Caracol Restaurant, 2200 Post Oak Blvd. near Westheimer, 77056. Limited enrollment.

NOTE: THIS COURSE IS FULLY SUBSCRIBED. 

Chilangos (residents of Mexico City) use the word comida –“food”—to mean “lunch.” The midday meal is the largest of the day and often a serious, lengthy event punctuated by lively conversation and tequila.  No one knows more about Mexico City’s culinary reality than Houston’s fourth James Beard Award-winner Hugo Ortega, who was born in Mexico City and grew up there and in his family’s ancestral village in Puebla near the Oaxacan border.
In this culinary nod to The Seminar’s spring study tour, Hugo Ortega and his staff will create a special comida menu. Caracol’s chef du cuisine will give a lively and informative explanation of the various dishes served as we explore the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world through its remarkable cuisine.
