That’s why FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, La Diva Cucina’s most popular class, THE MIAMI EXPERIENCE will be offered for small groups AND with the added bonus of giving back to charity!
Meals on Wheels of America
Through its network of more than 5,000 independently-run local programs and two million volunteers, Meals on Wheels of America has grown into one of the largest and most effective social movements in the country, currently helping nearly 2.4 million seniors annually in virtually every community.
While the diversity of each program’s services and operations may vary based on the needs and resources of their communities, they are all committed to supporting their senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their own homes. A percentage of every class fee will go to Meals on Wheels of America.
The Miami Experience for 4-10 guests:
Miami Beach conjures images of warm, sunny days, tropical drinks and exotic, Latin foods. Come to La Diva Cucina’s fabulous home on sparkling Biscayne Bay on Miami Beach and for a couple of hours, you can live like a local.
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 HERE today for an authentic Miami experience and help provide hot meals to our elderly. It’s fun and for a great cause!
