Join us at the mill for our summer asada and cooking tutorial! For this summer's family meal, you're invited to enjoy a low-key asada party where Education Center co-director Nadia Rodriguez will lead you through demos and hands-on components of her ideal summer cookout. This class will focus on making your own flour tortillas from scratch using Nadia's tried and true method, and she'll teach you how to cook them fresh on a live plancha so they're ready for our menu of chile-marinated flank steak, yogurt-chipotle chicken thighs, some familiar taco-topping suspects plus some other tricks we've got up our sleeve. To finish it all off, you will dine on Nadia's specially developed recipe for Mesquite Tres Leches, which celebrates local Texas flavors in a classic Mexican dessert. This class will highlight BSM's own stone-milled Sonora flour, which works beautifully in both tortillas and cakes on account of its buttery, creamy flavor profile and light-golden hue.

Family Meals at the mill are the perfect way to take home unique recipes developed by the mill staff, and experience first-hand all the insider tips and tricks that take recipes to the next level. We love inviting you into our space so we can share our love for ingredient-driven, seasonal cooking - no recipe gatekeeping here!

Purchase a ticket and ride solo ready to make friends, OR purchase 2+ tickets and make it a date night for 20% off the single ticket price. This event is BYOB for guests 21+, so bring your favorite adult beverages and friends for a delightful summer evening at the mill. 

About your instructor & BSM Education Center Co-Director, Nadia Rodriguez:

I got my culinary degree in 2018 but have been working in the culinary industry for 10 years now, with both savory and pastry experience. My passion for cooking started early with my grandmother, and I believe cooking is sharing love. I adore Italian, Asian and Latin cuisines. I love to curate flavors for individuals and make something unique and one of a kind. I love sharing the knowledge I have gained and showing how amazing ingredients such as Barton Springs Mill flour and the attitude you bring toward those ingredients can truly transform food into an experience. My ethos is have fun, do it with love, and you can't go wrong. :)

  • Have an opportunity to work with freshly stone-ground grains from Barton Springs Mill, paired with seasonal and local ingredients
  • Dine on a full menu (including dessert!) and take home in-depth recipes and tips and tricks

Fantastic, delicious experience

My first class at the mill but it was an absolute blast. Loved the format and all the delicious food. Both instructors were super helpful and knowledgeable. Also the food they made for everybody to enjoy with the tortillas we made was stellar. The mesquite tres leches nearly made me cry with joy.

Polent-y of fun family meal

Great, spring, cool-weather grilling of cod and polenta on a grill. Informative, fun and low key.
