This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

For many, conchas are the penultimate pan dulce, a Mexican sweet bread meant to be dunked into cafe con leche or hot chocolate. In this two-day workshop we will make two kinds of conchas: one with a hibiscus strawberry streusel topping with a natural pale pink tint. The other concha is blanco y negro, a chocolate bun with vanilla bean streusel on top.

Ready to roll?

Please Note: Day one of the workshop is Friday June 11, 6-8 pm PDT. We recommend having separate dinner plans, as the day one will not produce a savory meal. Day two of the workshop is Saturday June 12, 4-6 pm PDT. The conchas will be baked on day two.
