WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Escape to the coastal regions of Mexico this summer in ICC’s newest one-day cooking class, Mexican Favorites: Fish Tacos, Ceviche & More. Join Chef Danny Mena, ICC graduate and chef-owner of La Loncheria in Brooklyn, for a flavorful introduction to cooking with seafood in Mexican cuisine. In this hands-on class, you’ll learn to make three classic dishes and the signature sides to accompany everyone’s favorites!

cevicheFrom the refreshing flavors of a Sinaloa style ceviche, to a hearty shrimp soup with fresh vegetables, Chef Danny will teach you to make two appetizers highlighting the diverse uses of shrimp, or Camarón. Then, you’ll learn to make homemade tortillas, the perfect vessel for his delicious Blackened Fish Tacos—which you’ll learn to make from start to finish—including the Chile Lime Salsa to accompany it. As a special treat, Chef Mena will demonstrate how to create a cocktail with what he calls “the earthiest of Mexican spirits,” Mezcal—a perfect complement to the cuisine. By the end of the class, you’ll have tasted all of your hard work and be equipped with the skills to host an authentic meal for your next dinner party!

What You’ll Learn to Make:

  • Caldo de Camarón
  • Aguachile de Camarón (Sinaloa Style Ceviche)
  • Blackened Fish Tacos with a Chile Lime Salsa
  • Homemade Tortillas
  • Piña y Maguey (Mezcal Cocktail)

ABOUT CHEF DANNY MENA

Danny Mena is one of New York City’s top Mexican chefs, acclaimed for the traditional Mexican food he serves. After forgoing an engineering career for culinary school and stints at restaurants Blue Hill and The Modern, Mena started Hecho En Dumbo in 2007. He and his team quickly outgrew that space and opened the current Manhattan location in 2010.  In 2018 he opened La Loncheria in Bushwick, Brooklyn, creating a Mexican style luncheonette showcasing the often forgotten but almighty, torta (the Mexican sandwich)

Another Mexican tradition close to Mena’s heart is mezcal. Partnered in a mezcal distillery, Mezcales de Leyenda, whose mezcals are considered among the very best available in both the U.S. and Mexico.  As a trained chef, now working his way to become a sommelier, his knowledge from production to final distillation is unparalleled.
