La Cocina de Loisaida: Puerto Rican Vegan Fiesta de Tapas

April 22, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

La Cocina de Loisaida is a monthly in-person cooking class series presented by The Loisaida Center and Essex Market, where longtime Lower East Sider and home chef Maria Bido shares authentic Puerto Rican recipes and cooking techniques. Each month we’ll explore a new batch of family favorites, all based in Puerto Rican flavors and using ingredients from Essex Market.

In this class you’ll learn how to make fabulous Puerto Rican starters that are full of flavor! Our menu consists of Pionones, Vegan Relleno, Surrullitos de Maiz, and Limber de Coco. The dishes we will make are a phenomenal combination of traditional Caribbean Flavors! This class will be about 2 hours long and include time to savor the dishes you prepare together as a group.
