Today the wonderful people from El Mariachi Taqueria came to visit us in Year 3 and put on a Mexican cooking class for the children to take part in. We have been learning all about our bodies and the importance of having a healthy, balanced diet - so what better way than to make our own freshly prepared food?
The students learned about the ingredients they were going to be working with, from the flour tortillas, to the marinated chicken, to the ingredients for the salsa. They then went on to make their own 'pico de gallo' salsa. The name 'pico de gallo' literally means 'rooster's beak'! It consists of chopped tomatoes, green peppers, onion, cilantro (coriander), a pinch of salt, and a squeeze of lime juice. They then cooked their own flour tortillas and filled up their tacos with delicious marinated chicken, topped with their own self-made salsa.
The results were...delicious! You can see for yourself in the pictures below!
If you want to try the best Mexican in town, check out their website: http://emtbkk.wixsite.com/emtbkk - they will also be here next week to sell their authentic Mexican cuisine at our International Day Buffet on Monday, 12th of February.
See you then!
Welcome and thanks for visiting!
