The holidays in Puerto Rico usually last a couple of months and require bulk preparation of certain key meals that are must haves for the festivities. Regardless if gatherings are planned or spontaneous, Puerto Ricans love to party with food and drinks alongside family and friends. This December, Diana Sabater will bring her home, Puerto Rico, to COOK. Chef, caterer and entrepreneur Diana is known as the cop-turned-chef. After ten years in the Philadelphia Police Department, she pursued her dreams of becoming a chef, appearing on Food Network’s Chopped and winning three times, becoming the Ultimate Grand Chopped Champion! Guests will experience traditional food served during holiday celebrations as well as learning how to prepare some of the island’s main celebratory dishes, including pasteles (similar to tamales, made with root vegetables and traditionally filled with pork); mofongo with shrimp criollo (fried plantains smashed, seasoned and drenched with a savory shrimp in tomato sauce and Caribbean herbs); and popular party favorite arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas). Plus, to get everyone in the holiday spirit, guests will enjoy a glass a coquito, Puerto Rico’s equivalent of eggnog. Ticket sales from this class will be donated to Ricky Martin Foundation for Puerto Rican Hurricane Relief.
