At Wickedfood Earth Farm we grow a wide selection of Mexican vegetables.

In this Mexican cooking food workshop we concentrate on the fundamentals for perfect tacos:

  • Making different types of corn and flour tortillas from scratch;
  • Salsas – from classic tomato and onion to tomatillo and chilli;
  • Meat and Vegetarian fillings;

More about Mexican cuisine

Mexican cuisine is one of the 5 truly distinctive world cuisines. It’s a combination of the old and new world, Spanish traditions and little-known new world ingredients, with chilli usually close at hand. It is the new foods from Mexico and South America that have a lasting impression on the rest of the world – corn, beans, peanuts, potatoes, squashes, pumpkins, tomatoes, pineapples, guavas, papayas and avocado pears, and most importantly peppers, chillies, chocolate and vanilla. Corn has always been central to the cuisine with the tortilla as its centrepiece – the bread, plate and spoon all wrapped into one. Mexican cuisine is a bold cuisine that keeps the taste buds guessing and certainly a cuisine that once discovered is hard to resist.
