Menu: Guacamole, Sopa de Fideos Aguada, Chiles en Nogada, Frijoles de Olla, Corn Tortillas, Arroz con Leche
Summary: This week we are practicing our roasting techniques on Chiles, Tomatoes, and Pasta. We are also working on simmering and rice cookery.
Food: Guacamole and Chips: Our Guac was Delicious! Chef used the words “Very Good” and “Awesome” to describe the flavor. Our Chips were a crunchy but a little chewy. I think this came from them being a little on the thick side. It seems we are still having trouble getting the tortilla’s to be the correct thickness. Chef liked our presentation. He thought it looked nice.

Frijoles de Olla: I thought the beans tasted great but Chef said they were a little salty. He also thought they were a little under cooked. I like them with a little texture.
Arroz con Leche: Our Arroz con Leche was really tasty. The Rice was very nicely cooked and the dish was the perfect color. I really enjoyed this dessert.
