Andrea Rodriguez started Cooking Mexico to share her passion for Mexican cuisine with Australia. Now based in Canberra she launched her Cooking Mexico cooking sessions today at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets. Participants were treated to Mexican coffee and a two course lunch as Andrea demonstrated and served Black Bean Soup and Green Chilaquiles, two simple, traditional dishes using classic Mexican ingredients sourced in Canberra.
