Cooking Mexico – Andrea’s passion for Canberra


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.

    Ah my old cooking school! Glad you enjoyed this session with Andrea, it really does sound fun!


  2. Hi! I just saw this post one week later. So glad you enjoyed the whole experience. I am in the planning stage for the next session, most likely to be featured for Spring season with new recipes. I’ll let you guys know when dates are up. In the meantime, people can contact me for personal or group sessions, with a la carte menus. Liz Posmyk, I really enjoyed cooking in Belconnen, nice kitchen and the market just a few steps (very handy when I forgot the fresh coriander). Looking forward to do it again!

      Andrea, sorry I missed your class… broken foot recently, still non weight bearing after surgery. The cooking school is a good set up… and, yes, wonderful having the fresh produce from the market right outside! Keep in touch!
