San Antonio Chef Rico Torres of creative Mexican cuisine landmark Mixtli and the forthcoming Kumo will lend his expertise to a virtual Texas Food & Wine Alliance Alliance Academy class next week.

The TFWA's Alliance Academy provides virtual cooking courses complete with recipe kits which contain everything you need to prepare the restaurant-quality meal from home.

The James Beard Award nominee and 2017 Food & Wine Magazine Best New Chef of San Antonio will prepare Peeler Ranch ribeye tacos on heritage corn tortillas topped with a nutty salsa macha and a creamy avocado mash.

Torres will also show viewers how to prepare an invigorating cocktail featuring traditional Mesoamerican herb hoja santa, Rey Campero mezcal, fresh lime juice and a splash of sparkling water.

Following the guided course, the chef will stick around for a live Q&A to pass on essential kitchen secrets.

The class will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 12. Tickets — available for purchase from the TFWA website — run $129 to $159 and include a donation to the restaurant to assist in pandemic recovery.

Orders for recipe kits must be placed before 3 p.m. Tuesday, November 10, to allow for shipping time. San Antonio viewers should purchase booze separately, since kits containing alcohol are only available in the Austin area.
