Cuban Cuisine - Friday January 6th or Saturday January 7th at 6PM

With the relaxing of relations between the United States and Cuba there has been a renewed interest in the cuisine of this tiny island that lies just 90 miles from the tip of Florida. Since, until lately, all the restaurants were controlled by the government, the real cuisine of the country has been preserved in the home kitchens or Paladares, independently owned underground restaurants that are sustained by the nation’s thriving black market. Join us as we explore the everchanging dishes of this unique country. Arrozo Congri or rice and black beans and Ropa Vieja, shredded beef, form the staples of the table. But we’ll also make Croquetas with ham, Lechón Asado, one of our favorite roasted pork dishes and to finish, the traditional Cuban flan. $79. Sign up for Friday January 6th or Saturday January 7th

Tacos, Etc.! - Thursday January 12th at 6PM or Saturday January 14th at Noon

It’s unfortunate that, for many of us, our introduction to Mexican food involves crunchy taco shells and Old el Paso taco mix or worse, Taco Bell! But traditional Mexican food is a vast and extremely diverse cuisine utilizing unique ingredients and techniques. Tacos, admittedly only a very small portion of Mexican cooking, provide us with a self-contained flavor explosion of everything from fried fish to beef tongue and beyond! We’ll look at both corn and flour tortillas, the canvas upon which a great taco is created. Then craft a variety of different salsas, fillings and toppings. $59. Sign up for Thursday January 12th or Saturday January 14th

Paella and the Cuisine of Catalonia - Friday January 13th or Saturday January 14th at 6PM

With the culinary mecca, Barcelona at the center of Catalonia, it is easy to understand how both classic and avant-garde this region's cuisine has been and has evolved. With miles of coastline along the Mediterranean Sea, it is no surprise that seafood plays a major role in the classic Catalan dishes. Join us as we prepare Cod in the classic Catalan Sauce with Pine Nuts and Raisins as a first course, Barcelona-style Paella with Pork, Chorizo, Shrimp and a grated cheese topping as our main course and the traditional Catalan Caramel Custard for dessert. $79.
