La Diva Cucina
Benefiting Meals on Wheels of America
Private Miami Experience Cooking Class
Laura will teach about the four methods of cocktail making and everyone will muddle their own classic virgin Cuban mojito using freshly-squeezed lime juice and mint.
Together, you’ll explore the difference between plantains and how to make the Latin version of a potato chip, the tostone. Then, you'll learn how to use a tostonera and a quick and addictive garlic sauce for dipping.
From there, you'll make piccadillo empanaditas, delicious little meat pies, using an authentic Puerto Rican recipe and served with a Salvadoran crema.
The last dish you'll prepare is traditional Peruvian ceviche made with fish and shrimp bought from the fish market that very morning along with Peruvian choclo (corn), onions, and sweet potato served with yuca chips, it's refreshing and light.
The class ends with Cuban coffee and guava and cheese pasteles, Cuban pastries from a neighborhood bakery, all in Laura's beautiful home in Miami Beach. Sign up today for an authentic Miami experience. Guaranteed fun.
