Cinco de Mayo cooking class at Los Poblanos Inn & Cultural Center

Yesterday, I celebrated Cinco de Mayo by taking a cooking class at Los Poblanos Inn and Cultural Center here in Albuquerque.  It was especially fun because a friend and fellow BookBabes book club member, Muriel Carpenter, took the class with me.

About 12 people showed up for the three-hour class.  Executive chef Jonathan Perno and sous chef Jaye Wilkinson taught us how to make the following recipes: 

  • Pico de gallo
  • Guacamole
  • Taquitos
  • Ceviche de calamari
  • Wild halibut tacos garnished with coleslaw
  • Fried ice cream
As the grand finale, Molly Ater, dining room manager, taught us how to make Los Poblanos’ signature “lavender-infused margaritas.”

Here are some photos taken as we sat down to taste all we’d made.  What a wonderful meal—and what a gorgeous setting on the grounds of Los Poblanos!
