Smoked Chicken with Mole and Ensalada Tres Frijoles with Chef Allen Smith
Mole is a sauce that originated in Mexico and, more specifically, the states of Puebla and Oaxaca. It can be black, red, yellow, green and pipian with chile peppers being the common ingredient. The moles of today have also added chocolate, pine nuts, pepitas, sesame seeds and cilantro just to name a few to their list of ingredients adding more complexity and richness to the sauce. We are featuring one of our favorite moles from the school that is tasty and not too complicated to make.
In this class you will learn to make smoked chicken with mole, and one of our favorite side dishes, a three bean salad that is great for outdoor summer dining.
