What you'll do

We will visit the farmers market to select fresh local produce to cook with. I will introduce you to some of the vendors and will share historic facts about the farmers market, our gastronomy and local agriculture. We will then drive a short distance to my house where we will enjoy a welcome drink and start cooking the way my grandmother used to cook, with fresh local ingredients and always adding pinch of love. We will eat together with great conversation about food of course. After lunch we will sit in my porch to enjoy a cup of Puertorican coffee, and locally made dessert. Menu is based on availability of fresh seasonal ingredients and your input on dietary needs or specific requests. Please make sure to communicate any dietary restrictions or requets ahead of time. Note: Please feel free to contact me to accomodate a different date or time. This experience is usually offered for lunch but it could be arranged as a late lunch or early dinner. We will visit a different farmers market depending on the day of the week. It can be offered in English or Spanish.

Nivia

I’m a foodie and nature lover proud to have been born and raised in this small island surrounded by a big ocean. Im a trained Culinarian and a nutrition educator who loves to share my passion for our cuisine, our culture and the resiliency of our people. I studied culinary arts at Johnson and Wales University and worked at Share our Strength/Cooking Matters/No Kid Hungry teaching families how to shop and cook healthy and delicious on limited resources. Hurricane Maria was a wake up call for me and many other puertorricans who realized that we import 85% of what we consume. It then became clear that we must have a local sustainable agriculture. As an advocate and agroecology promoter, I will introduce guests to our unique cuisine utilizing products cultivated by farmers who work hard to reestablish our sustainable agriculture.

More tips
