Get your gal pals together and satisfy your cravings for salt, sweet, and spice at this Girls Night! Platos pequeños means small dishes and in Mexico these casual, everyday favorites are often referred to as antojitos, which means cravings. Antojitos are staples - made in every home and available fresh from a street vendor in any town - taking advantage of the fresh foods for each region and season. Though there is much variation, these small plates all share common features like masa, often in the form of a fresh tortilla, tostada, or empanada shell. And of course, no platos pequeños would be complete without its share of colorful and flavorful garnishes providing contrast and brightness for each dish.
After class, take home these recipes and let them inspire future meals, as you swap toppings, fillings, and seasonal ingredients creating your own special antojitos all Summer long. Come and join us as we snack to satisfaction on our platos pequeños!
