Cuban cooking class with chef



Chef Pascual

Cuba’s history is perhaps best told through her people’s cuisine. The island has rich soil and abundant sea life along its shores. The Taino Indians (Cuba’s aboriginals) began the island’s rich culinary journey using these plentiful ingredients. The conquistadors brought their love of meat to the island. African slaves infused a love of spices like cumin and bay leaves. And most recently, the Revolution of the 1950s resulted in a deep ethnocentricity, reigniting the importance of authentic Cuban dishes.

While preparing sumptuous, traditional dishes with Chef Pascual, you become intimately aware of the cultures and events which shaped today’s Cuban food. This experience connects you to Cuba through a delicious meal crafted by a passionate and talented chef whose love for his country comes through with every bite. ¡Buen Provecho!

"Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world people eat together." - Guy Fieri
