Class Recap: Mexico As The Origin of Chocolate with Lucio Palazzo of Loco Pez

Palazzo7

Chef Lucio Palazzo of Loco Pez paid a visit yesterday and, in honor of Valentine’s Day, he delivered a delicious five-course Mexican feast with chocolate. Take a look at what he prepared for us!

We kicked the evening off with foie gras and duck posole served with a cocoa tostada. This dish had all of us wanting to lick the plate!
