In-person Workshop: Birria Two Ways – Soup & Quesabirria Tacos and Consommé

March 21, 2022 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM


Monday, March 21, 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM. In-person Workshop: Birria Two Ways: Soup & Quesabirria Tacos and Consommé with Chef Juan Almanza & Wake Up Tucson’s Chris DeSimone. Cost: $75.00 each. 

What does birria taste like? The traditional Mexican stew is rich, brothy, slightly spicy, earthy and full of flavor. Chef Juan Almanza’s has rabid fans lining up at his El Taco Rustico restaurant to savor its deliciousness.

Adding to the kitchen fun and joining Chef Juan is Wake Up Tucson’s host, former chef, foodie and birria lover Chris DeSimone.    

Also on the menu: Salsa, the birria garnishes of veggies, onion, cilantro, cabbage and limes and flan. Fresh already made tortillas will hold the cheesy quesabirria tacos ready for dipping in the consommé.
