Event Overview

Have you ever considered traveling to another part of the world to explore and learn about another culture through food? If so, you’re in luck! Chicago is rich Mexican culture. We’re fortunate enough to have some amazing resources for authentic Mexican cuisine and in this class, we’re taking a closer look at the neighborhood of Pilsen.

In this class, Dabblers will get a delicious taste of some hidden gems in the Pilsen neighborhood and learn more about the culture through food. You’ll learn about exotic ingredients commonly used in Mexican cooking, find out where to shop like the locals (like chef Rick Bayless), visit a tortilla factory and of course, indulge in a authentic Mexican eats from pork carnitas, goat stew, churros, tres leches, tamales and many more. After this class and luncheon, you’ll leave with a better understanding and appreciation of Mexican culture and cuisine, as represented in the vibrant neighborhood of Pilsen.

    This tour was great!! The food was great and the walk was not too tiresome. Joelen is an excellent guide and I will certainly be signing up for more of the events she hosts. Often in ethnic neighborhoods, you always end up going to the "old standby" that you're familiar with. Getting better acquainted with Pilsen was great. Now I will be more adventurous when planning to go to dinner, lunch or shopping there.

    We had a great time on the Tour of Pilsen. I loved checking out all the places I would never have gone to on my own. I was so great getting to experience a new area of Chicago. We got to try so many yummy treats. Joelen was a great teacher and guide. I hope there are more of these in the future.

    It was great to share the Pilsen neighborhood with you Becky! Stay tuned... I'll be opening up more culinary neighborhood tours on upcoming Sundays!
