|Chef Fernando and his students!|
|Students making their own Guacamole|
After the event, I got a chance to chat with Chef Fernando about the art of guacamole making. He says that the secret is all in the mix and your own creativity. When it comes to guacamole, the combinations are endless! After our chat, I got a chance to mix up some of my own guacamole. My personal creation consisted of avocados, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and some taco seasoning. I was surprised at how much mashing is involved in getting the avocados to that great creamy texture. Fernando also warned me against over mashing and mixing which leads to a watery guacamole! When I was finally done mashing it and mixing it, I was surprised at how delicious it was!
