Monica Online Experience #1
Cook with Monica in your kitchen, online via zoom. A great activity to do with the whole family as it is price per device. We may not be able to travel right now, but share a family experience learning about a new culture and cuisine with our online culinary adventures.
This is also a great opportunity to sample what our culinary adventures are all about without committing to the four hour immersion experience.
After the 1 hr culinary adventure you are invited to linger online for another 30 minutes to chat with Melissa and other participants.
Our online culinary experiences are moderated by In My Kitchen founder, Paula Mohammed.
Enchiladas and Chilaquiles (vegetarian options available i.e Jackfruit)
Enchiladas are corn tortillas around a filling with a chili pepper sauce and date back to Mayan times. Monica's family recipe uses the small corn tortillas with a chicken filling (a vegetarian options will be provided) and she serves them with a tomato style sauce that is used for both the enchiladas and chilaquiles.
Chilaquiles are a traditional Mexican dish often served for breakfast in order to use up the day old tortillas. The corn tortillas are fried and served in a salsa with lots of cheese!
