At the Milk Street Cooking School, we use tacos to illustrate our cooking theory because, quite simply, they are the perfect food. In this class, we'll harness both their theoretical and gustatory powers as you learn to make three fantastic tacos including fillings, salsas, and pickles. You'll discover how our signature cooking theory transforms home cooking, and you'll become a better cook along the way. All in 2½ hours. That's the power of a taco. In class we'll make carnitas, refried beans, shrimp seared in chipotle sauce, multiple salsas and herb-ladden rice to investigate our Taco Theory and build ourselves a perfect dinner.
