The Farm Cooking School is thrilled to have Mexican Chef, Miriam Flores of Puerto Vallarta, join us for a week of morning cooking classes this July. Raised in Pabelo, a small village in Jalisco, Mexico, Mirian grew up in the kitchen helping her grandmother with everyday tasks: hand-grinding corn, making fresh cheese, picking fresh chiles, grinding spices with mortar and pestle. Everyone pitched in, and everyone gathered to eat meals together. Food was not just calories or nutrition, but a way of sustaining love and the fabric of family. Food is a love language, a way to say “I love you.”
Now, as a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, she has traveled not just throughout Mexico, but Europe and beyond. She worked at Blue Hour, one of Portland, Oregon’s premier fine-dining restaurants. She started a catering business in Cork, Ireland. And she’s lived in the hustle and bustle of Barcelona, one of the world’s most modern, cosmopolitan cities.
Monday: Introduction to techniques and ingredients, including spices, chiles, salsa making and homemade corn tortillas. Vegetarian Menu: Sopes, Chiles Rellenos de Queso Oaxaca, Orange and Vanilla Flan
