What you'll do
I will teach you how to prepare a typical and tasty Caribbean dinner step by step. The meal will include pork or chicken as a main dish, but also rice, beans, fried plantains, vegetable salad, dessert, and other dishes. At the beginning, I will welcome you by offering a fresh fruit cocktail. Then I will start to give you some general information about the ingredients we'll be using during the class. Afterward, all of us together are going to peel and cut the plantains, potatoes, and other ingredients. We we'll also cut the pork or chicken in pieces and marinate it. Then, you will help me to fry plantains and prepare some salad. You will check with me all the cooking process. After everything gets ready, we'll eat together as a family enjoying the meal and the conversation. As we cook, we’ll discuss our day to day life, history and future: 1- How to find the best ingredients and the challenges of cooking on the island. 2- Differences between the ingredients you can buy with CUC or CUP, where we would use them and why two money. 3- We will answer any of your questions about the Cuban people and the life in Havana City.
Arien & Ivan
I'm Arien, a skilled chef who adores culinary art and fruit decorations. I was born in the countryside and have a big family. Our first rule was to sit all together at the table for having breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Then, I moved to the city, but I still honor my traditions. In my free time, I have a part-time job as a manager in a rental house, and I'm responsible for preparing dinner for guests. I have been doing this for about 10 years because it's my passion. I will feel lucky to have the chance to teach you my cooking secrets.
