Fiesta Always - With Tequila And Fun Friends

"Fiesta Always - with Tequila and fun friends" - the wise words Lucinda Hutson autographed into our signed copy of her lovely book: !Viva Tequila! Cocktails, Cooking, and other Agave Adventures.

Last week we had the delight of hosting "A True Fiesta with Guest Chef and Author Lucinda Hutson."

Everyone who attended had an absolutely amazing time - which seems to be Lucinda's specialty! We worked hard in the kitchen to prepare her delicious recipes ahead of time, so by the time class started, we had a beautiful spread of amazing fiesta foods we could enjoy with uninterrupted story-telling and tequila fun! The majority of the recipes in Viva Tequila come together quickly and are best made in advance - so the host can enjoy the party too! All of the recipes had Lucinda's unique spin but one very important ingredient in common - Tequila! 

Highlights of our fiesta menu included:

Queso Sabroso (Snookered Goat Cheese) 

Queso Flameado (Melted Cheese Flambeed in Tequila) 

Corn Salsa Prontisimo (with Avocado, lots of fresh lime juice, and Tequila!) 

Negros y Pina a la Criztina (Black Beans and Pineapple Spiked with Mezcal) 
A delightful spin on a pot of nourishing beans! 

And my personal favorite:
