Sonora Hot & Cold: Caldo de Queso y Horchata de Melon

It is a strange thing to have the people of a hot desert love soups as deeply as the Sonoran people do, but who is to complain when the soups are so delicious? This class will cover one these many soups, Caldo de Queso, a soup not for the dairy faint of heart. Cool off after this wonderful soup with a refreshing Horchata de Melon, made not with the flesh of the fruit but with the seeds and inner pulp. It isn’t garbage, it is perhaps the fruit’s best part
