Say hola to new Thanksgiving tradition

If you're tired of the same-old traditional turkey dinner you've had every year since lord knows when, then keep reading:

Zocalo's Executive Chef Dudley Nieto is teaching a class on how to prepare a Mexican-American Thankgiving dinner tomorrow.

Participants will learn how to put a Mexican spin on the traditional American Thanksgiving feast with Nieto's recipes like a guajillo-marinated turkey in ancho, chiles pasilla stuffed with cheese, and crema de flor de calabaza (squash blossom soup with roasted spaghetti squash and a hint of mole poblano).

The class is $45 and includes a sampling of all the recipes, plus complimentary warm cinnamon-infused tequila ponche. It's 11am-1pm at the restaurant, 358 W. Ontario St.,312-302-9977.

Have a fabulous weekend!
