One event on March 1, 2020 at 4:00 pm


Let us take you to the tropics this winter – without the long plane ride! We’re bringing you a seasonal & local twist on the traditional flavors of Puerto Rican cuisine at our Farm-to-Kitchen cooking class with Chef Addy. Chef Addy uses primarily New England produce to make tropically-inspired recipes using spices and intense flavors that make this cuisine so delicious!

In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of local farmers and artisans to create an exciting multi-course meal and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles.


  • Tostones with sofrito – crispy green plantains accompanies by a tangy and herbaceous sauce
  • Asopao de pollo – a traditional and warming chicken stew loaded with garlic, capers and plum tomatoes
  • Flan de cafe – a delicious and rich twist on a classic Caribbean custard!
