Upon your arrival, you will be served an appetizer of tostones (green plantains) to hold you until we have our dinner. I will show you how to make the best Cuban mojito, and you will be ready to replicate it at home or to modify it to your taste with the myriad of fruit flavors at your disposal. You will then be served an authentic Cuban meal in my dining room at our family table while learning about the flavorful components I have chosen and why. This Experience includes teaching you about these popular food options, how my preparation compares to actually being in Cuba, combined with its historical relevance, nutritional value and explosive flavor. I'm happy to tailor meals in advance based on dietary need (i.e. vegan vs. meat-based). With my background as a cook and foodie— and my own experience living in South Florida AND spending a week in Havana eating homegrown Cuban food— you cannot go wrong with this Cuban culinary extravaganza! Everything that I teach you will be: - authentically Cuban - highest quality - ridiculously delicious - nutritious - budget friendly I look forward to sharing this Cuban sensory Experience with you!
Hi! I'm Allison and I am delighted to share my amazing, AUTHENTIC Cuban Experience with you. I am an avid cook and foodie, and I was fortunate to be able to spend an intense week in and around Havana immersed in the vibrant culture. I have brought that Experience home and am delighted to share an immersive evening with you! We will enjoy a traditional Cuban meal (choose a meat-based or vegetarian/plant-based meal) and the best mojito ever (available as non-alcoholic by request!)— both prepared from scratch and served in the warmth of my home. We will listen to Cuban music (salsa and jazz), I will replicate the warmth of the Cuban hospitality I received, the dress code is festive, and you will hear my stories about my time in Havana for a total sensory Experience!
Cuban Dinner. Tostones (Plantain appetizer)
This authentic Cuban Immersion Experience takes place entirely in my home in Cary from start to finish.
Please let me know if you have food restrictions— i.e. if have peanut allergies, or are vegetarian, or if you don't eat pork— and I will plan our meal accordingly.
