Cooking Class: A Taste of Puerto Rico

In this colorful hands-on cooking class, Chef Kelly breaks down beloved Puerto Rican dishes so that you can learn to recreate them for your friends and family. 


Boost your kitchen confidence as you master four iconic Puerto Rican recipes and familiarize yourself with lush produce, rich spices and traditional cooking techniques. You'll start by serving up a savory mofongo con camarones a la criolla with shrimp, green plantains, sofrito and tomato sauce. From there, green plantains take center stage in a whole new way as crispy tostones with mojo sauce. For your entrée, you'll tackle arroz con gandules y pernil — or Puerto Rican rice with pigeon peas and pork — and you'll finish with a classic Puerto Rican dessert, tembleque with coconut milk and cinnamon.

This was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Chef Kelly really likes helping people learn how to cook. She very patient and answered all questions. When we were making the stuff pasta, she would help each student improve their technique individually. It was fun having a hands on experience in which the whole class helped each other out. I am looking forward to taking more classes from her
