Ropa Vieja with Chef David Viana (8/23/21)
Monday, August 23 @ 6:30pm
Hands-On Class (approx. 2.5 hours)
Ropa Vieja, the national dish of Cuba, is a meal that is steeped in history. This rustic, humble dish so perfectly tells the story of the country’s culinary and cultural evolution over the last half-century. Like many great parts of Cuban culture, ropa vieja started life in Spain. Its name literally translates to ‘old clothes’ and the story goes that a penniless old man once shredded and cooked his own clothes because he could not afford food for his family. He prayed over the bubbling concoction and a miracle occurred, turning the mixture into a tasty, rich meat stew. In this class, Chef David will teach you to make Ropa Vieja alongside duck confit empanadas, maduros, rice, and beans.
