Join San Francisco-based chef Gonzalo Guzmán for a night of cooking and conversation. Gonzalo will teach you about regional Mexican cuisine, his career, and his love affair with the corn tortilla, which he will make from scratch for us as well as some other masa-based recips from his kitchen.
Christopher's interview with Gonzalo for Milk Street Radio was one of his favorites in 2018 and we're delighted to host him for a live event at our cooking school. After the event, there will be a book signing and reception featuring wine, beer and snacks from Gonzalo’s stunning new book Nopalito: A Mexican Kitchen.  

The event is followed by a book signing and reception featuring samples of recipes from Nopalito. Cookbooks will be available for sale with your ticket or onsite during the post-demonstration signing and reception.
