The LA Plaza Village housing complex near El Pueblo is steaming ahead.
The project will include the museum/teaching kitchen LA Plaza Cocina, and the upcoming schedule of classis open to the public was recently announced.
The programming is arranged into four categories: Hecho con Amor, 16-person hands-on cooking classes with L.A. chefs; Pláticas y Pruebas, a 50-person class that brings audiences together in a classroom setting with authors and Mexican food and beverage experts; Sabor a México, which celebrates the cuisine of Mexican regions and holidays; and events that focus on documentary film screenings and tastings.
The first class will take place on Saturday, Feb. 9, and will highlight offerings from Valle de Guadalupe, a budding wine region in Mexico. The next class, on March 14, will shine a spotlight on the female pioneers of Mexican cuisine, including cookbook authors Vincenta Torres de Rubio and Josefina Velasquez de Leon. A full schedule is at lapca.org.
