The charismatic Hugo from Café Azteca led Dublin's Yelp Elite Squad on a culinary tour of what real Mexican food consists of. His passion for his native country, Mexico, was infectious as the Yelp Elite Squad learned how to make simple dishes such as pico de gallo and guacamole but most importantly the correct cooking process and ingredients that goes into making real Mexican food. Everyone got to take home a Yelp recipe card of the cookery class and some Café Azteca tortilla mixture to make at home!
Nicky from The Fresh Market in Fairview kindly supplied all the ingredients for the cookery lesson as well as the limes for the bottles of Corona that Brian from Barry & Fitzwilliam Ltd generously gave us to get the party started! Oh he also give us Sauza Tequila for our margaritas which were guzzled down in quick time!
The Elite Squad got to enjoy the beautiful space that is the Centre for Creative Practices that Ian & Monika run. Luckily the weather was pleasant enough for us to go into the Georgian courtyard. The highlight of the night was when we were treated to a surprise by Hugo, his Mariachi band "Azteca" played Mexican tunes for us as the summer sun faded to a beautiful golden hue. Once again the talented Daniel Browne snapped the festivities, the photos can be viewed here and see what people are saying in the reviews or pen your own opinion here!
Thank you everyone, it's always a pleasure to be amongst you entertaining souls!
All my best,
