Recently I took a Cuban cooking class. Jamie gave me a gift certificate to a cooking school in Culver City for Christmas, we have been so busy since Christmas that last week was my first opportunity to take one. I was very excited to take this class, as I LOVE cuban food as does my other half :) The class was fun, we made several things, I was surprised at the amount of dishes we learned how to prepare; Empanadas with Picadillo Filling, Fried Yucca Chips, Cangrejitos,Puerco Asado, Drunken Chicken, Baked Whole Snapper with Sofrito, Basque Tossed salad with radishes and spanish olives, Black beans and rice, coconut flan, and of course mojitos! Here are some pictures of the treats I made!
I am excited to re-make some of these at home - the pork was beautiful - not to dry which is alway my fear when I cook pork. There is such a fine line between dry and cooked appropriately when preparing pork- my teacher suggested taking it out at 140 if not a tad bit earlier and letting it finish cooking as it rests. Until next time!
