Reserve your tickets today to receive the ingredients and instructions to follow along!

A note from the chef:

This recipe is Oaxaca’s salute to Spain and is prepared many different ways.  Sometimes it’s red, sometimes green; this version is a beautiful orange color.  The color varies depending on the type of chiles used, how ripe the tomatoes are, and the proportion of tomatillos used. My husband, Eric, loves this dish.  We take turns grinding the ingredients on the metate-the three-legged grinding stone used since pre-Hispanic times.  The first time we ground the sauce by hand was when the electricity went out during a cooking class!
