Cook & Mingle- Yuca, Arepas & Vino

  • DINE ON IN! 350 K Street San Diego, CA, 92101 United States (map)

For this workshop, we are visiting two countries and their incredible street food. Cultural foods tell a story of  heritages that are long gone, but this is opportunity to share these stories with you.

One of our two focuses will be on yucca plant which is popular in Peru. It's a tough skin, looks like a tree branch, but its flesh is milky and the texture lends itself to make the best gluten-free flatbread and baskets of pan de queso. The yucca (also known as tapioca or cassava, is pillowy, and delicate in flavor. 

The next focus is on corn and its complex structure that makes the most incredible griddle cakes known called Arepas, a street food from Colombia. These are crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. 

You will have a hands on opportunity to make your own a yucca flatbread or an arepa (optional).

Or just sit and relax and enjoy the good company and fill your already made flatbreads and arepas with the set menu below. 

A Few Reminders: 

We are located in Downtown San Diego and we start on time. Sometimes, parking in the area might be scarce, so we encourage you to carpool or ride share to avoid any paid lots. We do not assume responsibility for any surge pricing at the adjacent parking lots. 

At the end, I like to host a door prize giveaway, so make sure that you bring your business cards and fill out the survey for a chance to walk away with a fun gift! 

Feel free to bring your favorite wine to share and also a great story about your favorite South American hot spot.
