In this class, the menu will be inspired by the Milpa System. This system is a Mesoamerican crop growing system that fed and continues to nourish many indigenous nations throughout the Americas.

The Milpa System made it possible for the domestication of indigenous ingredients, such as tomatoes, corn, squash, chiles, and beans.

Learn how to prepare a plant-based pipián sauce that features fragrant herbs and the legendary three sisters: beans, squash and corn. These crops grow symbiotically and provide a variety of culinary offerings to Mesoamerican and Mexican Culture.

Special Guest: Marlene Aguilar of Irekuarhikua.
