Learn how to make Salsa Macha, the nutty, spicy, savory Mexican condiment you will want to slather on everything! We love that with one sauce, there are many applications.

In this online class, Annelies will show you how to use this sauce to make a supple eggplant that can star as the centerpiece of a vegetarian dinner or as a stunning side dish. We will also spice up an al pastor inspired chicken or tofu with salsa macha.

This will be a wickedly delicious class with oodles of ideas—you could say we will be making MACHA ado about Salsa Macha.
