Chef Paul Richards presents Passport Series: Destination Havana (Hands On)
Cuban food has heavy Spanish, African, and Caribbean influences, yet it is prepared with local island ingredients that make the dishes decidedly their own. Take garlic, onions, cumin, and oregano, add a splash of lime or sour orange juice, and finish it off with a good douse of olive oil-and you have the essence of Cuban cooking. Aromatic spice, not the fiery kind, is what makes this cuisine so deliciously addictive. By the end of the night, you’ll feel like you’ve spent a sultry night sipping mojitos in Old Havana. ¡Buen provecho!
On the menu: Watermelon Daiquiri, Pickled Ham Salad “Tea Sandwich,” Avocado and Watercress Salad with Red Onion, Radish, Tomato, and Lemon Vinaigrette, Lomo Beef Steak with Chimichurri and Patatas Ali-Oli, and Rice Pudding with Candied Orange and Spiced Rum Drizzle
