Cooking Class

In the spirit of the Mesa Komal name, we seek to create community and foster conversation and connections through the kitchen.  Here you will find an overview of the opportunities to share a meal or learn a new recipe at Mesa Komal. All events support the work of Conexión Américas.

Mezcla: Mix and Master Cooking Class

Join us once a month in our Mesa Komal kitchen for a cooking class and culinary adventure.  Highlighting the cuisine from a particular country, it will be an intimate opportunity to learn about the chef’s culture while enjoying some typical music and food.  You will experience new ingredients and unique recipes through the process of creating a fabulous dinner.  Proceeds support the work of Conexión Américas.

Available in increments of $10 and valid toward any Mezcla class in 2014-2015.  Perfect as a gift!
