Sat, May 5

This Cinco de Mayo, bring your appetite and a bottle of water and meet your guides for the first half of the event - an exciting culinary tour of the Mission. Tasting tour stops may include Wise Sons Deli, freshly baked mini cupcakes from Mission Minis, authentic tacos from El Farolito, and award-winning ice cream from Humphry Slocombe. Finally, stop into La Palma Foods, a Mexican market where you'll see some of the ingredients you'll later learn to cook with. Tour stops are subject to change.

The moving tour ends in the kitchen at La Cocina, a business incubator that cultivates low-income food entre­pre­neurs as they for­mal­ize and grow their busi­nesses by pro­vid­ing afford­able com­mer­cial kitchen space, industry-specific tech­ni­cal assis­tance and access to mar­ket oppor­tu­ni­ties. You'll then join the Parties That Cook chefs for an exciting hands-on cooking class featuring the exotic flavors of the Mission. Enjoy a lively introductory cooking demo featuring tips such as the fastest way to dice an onion without a tear. Then, break into teams and learn to prepare recipes from the day's Latin-inspired small plates menu, all while listening to upbeat music. When the cooking is over, you'll savor the 'fruits' of your labor hot from the oven!
