TACOLAB: Rancho-style Carnitas (cooking class)

Y'know tacos taste better when you make 'em yourself but they taste even better when they're made in a cazo, in a brewery and rancho-style. Yeah, put those pots and pans away, cuz we gonna make carnitas, rancho-style. The TacoLab is my introduction to Texas and Mexican style cooking that go back generations, from carnitas in a cazo (cauldron), to barbacoa in a pozo and al pastor on a trompo. These are just some of the styles I grew up with and now I'm sharing the taco love with home cooks, newbies and seasoned taqueros. And no, you don't have to be a chef or have a fancy title, you just have to bring your "grassroots cocinero" attitude & ganas! Register aquí.
