We are the owners of a local family restaurant called Ranchón La Mulata, and enthusiastic defenders of Cuba's culinary traditions. My passion for Cuban food started when my two grandmothers taught me the recipes I would later use to develop my own restaurant. Recipes I trust my son to keep.
We'll cook traditional Cuban dishes using recipes I learned from my grandparents and gathered from the Cuban countryside. Oregano, cumin, garlic, sour orange, corn, taro-root, yucca. We'll embed those flavors and aromas into Cuban classic dishes such as rice and beans, fritters, green fried plantains, and others. We'll discover how simple and yet tasty, traditional Cuban cuisine can be. Over lunch, we'll discuss the challenges of running a private restaurant (paladar) in Cuba for over 25 years.
We'll meet at the Ranchón La Mulata restaurant at 11 a.m., an hour before it opens for business in order to have more privacy.
Calle 3ra A # 9012 e/ 90 y 92, Playa
We'll be at the restaurant at all times. There, together, we will cook an unforgettable lunch.
Bring your camera to document the skills you'll acquire. Also let me know if you have dietary restrictions or preferences that can be taken into consideration when choosing and preparing the dishes. If you are vegetarian or vegan you'll also have a space in my experience.
