At last, a Latin-inspired culinary adventure for the foodies, chowhounds and gourmets among us! Once a month, guests will enjoy a fantastic restaurant style dinner featuring the flavors and ingredients of Central and South America and its conquistadors, Spain and Portugal. This month's dinner features a few of my (and past guest) favorite dishes.
Take time to mingle and relax before the four to five course dinner, including a welcome cocktail. Bring your favorite beer or wine, an appetite and an open mind, and I will dazzle you with the aromas and flavors of the Americas. So much more stimulating than tacos and rodizio, rich spices express their flavor through cooking techniques having roots in Africa, the Orient and Mediterranean.
I’ll save you a seat.
