Southwest Barbecue

Southwest Barbecue

The term “barbecue” probably originated from the Spanish word “barbacoa” which loosely means to slow cook meat over a wooden platform. By the 19th century this culinary technique was well established in the American South with pork being the choice of meat for barbecuing.

Barbecue varies from region to region with Texas, Tennessee and North Carolina all proclaiming to be the “kings” of smoked meats. Here in the Southwest we love to grill and prepare barbecue with a “kick”-translation, we love our chiles in everything!

In this class, mixing savory and sweet flavors, you will learn to make Ribs with Chipotle Barbecue Sauce, Frijoles Charros, Green Tamales with Crema, Grilled Pineapple Slaw and Saffron Poached Pears with Salted Caramel Sauce. Demonstration class, 3-hours.
