Choose Between Two Options
- $30 for a tortilla- and salsa-making class and beer flight for one (a $62 total value)
- $50 for a tortilla- and salsa-making class and beer flight for two (a $124 total value)
During two-hour classes (a $50 value/person), students craft corn and flour tortillas from scratch and create roasted-tomatillo salsa using a family recipe from Tarascos’ chefs. Each student will take home a dozen tortillas and a batch of salsa. Beer flights (a $12 value) accent the fare with four organic brews that are made at the restaurant.
Tarascos Mexican Restaurant
At Tarascos, owner Antonio Garcia and his chefs blend the comfortable and familiar with the slightly out of the ordinary. A chalkboard-scrawled menu lists Mexican classics such as enchiladas alongside lesser-known dishes such as huaraches, large, oblong tortillas stacked with charbroiled meats. Plates of barbacoa feature the seasoned beef wrapped in maguey leaves and slow-steamed until tender. Likewise, the tap menu mixes Mexican imports such as Pacifico and Modelo Especial with Tarascos's own home-brewed organic beers.
Patrons can dine inside or outdoors on a beer garden–style patio shaded from weather and warmed with gas heaters. On the patio, Tarascos also regularly holds cooking classes, such as a tamale class that was featured on ABC 7.
