Description
 
Monica Mannion’s cooking trajectory is a full circle. Born in Mexico City, she attended the Cambridge Cookery School in the UK and found herself living in Shanghai, where she became the private chef for a Mexican diplomat. Monica’s connection to Mexican cuisine is deeply personal, and it’s her mission to expose her audience to the wide diversity of her homeland’s cooking, beyond the ubiquitous Tex Mex and Texicali fare that we all know. Join Monica for her COOK debut, when she will share not just the preparation of contemporary Mexican dishes but their cultural origins – tepache (a sweet, light and refreshing fermented pineapple brew); chilled poblano and almond soup; a palate cleanser of queso panela y sandia (Mexican semi-soft fresh cheese and watermelon); beef salpicon over tostadas de nopal (shredded beef salad over cactus tostadas); and mango colada pudding.
