Discover the traditions, legends, and history of one of the most emblematic dishes in contemporary Mexican cuisine. Mole is a very sophisticated dish made with a combination of more than 20 ingredients; dried chile peppers, nuts, fried tortillas, dried and fresh fruits, and dark chocolate.
Join Mexican chefs Paola Solorzano and Adriana Pelayo from Santo Pecado Mexican Catering in a journey through the senses where mole origins will be discussed, an then recreated in an interactive hands-on workshop. You will learn to appreciate some different moles in the initial tasting, and then you’ll be guided step by step to make your own to take home.
Born and raised in Mexico, Chef Paola Solorzano comes from a large family of abuelas (grandmothers), sisters, aunties and cousins that take great pleasure in gathering at the kitchen to share recipes, stories and secrets that invariably end in flavourful feasts.
With her broad knowledge of Mexican ingredients and flavours, and Culinary Management and Nutrition certificates from George Brown College under her belt, Paola joined forces with Adriana Rubio to found Santo Pecado Mexican Catering, a successful new catering company specializing in authentic traditional Mexican dishes.
