What you'll do

You need to meet me in Hermosa Beach, I am about 15 minutes from LAX and 4 blocks from the beach where I have a full professional kitchen. Time permitting, we will go shopping nearby to pick up fresh ingredients. We then will prep the food together insuring that everyone will have a hand in the process. During the presentation we will prepare some specialty appetizers such as a guacamole dip so that they can enjoy while we are preparing the main courses which will be Chicken enchiladas or Tostadas with green sauce or enchiladas with green/red sauce. I will provide, wine, beer, coffee, tea, water and soft drinks during the cooking experience. Once the food is ready in about 2-3 hours we will sit down and eat the food we have created. Weather permitting we can enjoy our meal in the patio with an ocean view. The whole experience will be about 2-3 hours. I would need a minimum of 2-6 people for this to work and a maximum of 10 people. The type of food we will be making is labor intensive and requires lots of hands. I don't want anybody feeling excluded. At the end I will provide everyone with the recipe so they can try it at home.
