Free Demo with Chef Lowell Kay
 

Most chefs find their passion for cooking later on in life.  Lowell Kay has been in a kitchen since he was 5 years old and has never stopped experiencing what the world has to offer on a plate.  He was fortunate to have traveled the world, studied and cooked for Diplomats and friends, owned a catering business and now resides in Los Angeles, where he shares his love for food.  Based upon his travels, he brings a diverse palate that would be best described as fusion of the world, creating themed evenings that feature culturally diverse flavors.  When asked a question, his most likely answer will be “yes”.   This has created a life of many interesting stories, successes and failures, but most importantly an openness to new ideas, combinations and dare we say, thinking on the edge. 

Chef will be sharing a delicious Carnitas Taco's and Corn Relish recipe. Samples will be available. Don't miss this great experience!!

Taste of El Salvador’s Pupusa Master Class with Chef Alicia Maher
 

Alicia Maher’s “Taste of El Salvador’s Pupusa Master Class

Hola I am Alicia Maher, Gourmand Award winner and author of Delicious El Salvador and El Salvador, Sabores Deliciosos. Join me for my “Taste of El Salvador’s Pupusa Master Class”. I will teach you how to make the masa from scratch and how to prepare authentic meat and vegetable fillings for this iconic Salvadoran dish. Plus, I will also teach you how to prepare other recipes and talk about Salvadoran food history.

The Pipil, the indigenous people of El Salvador, are credited with the invention of the Pupusa. The word “pupusa” derives from the Nahuat language and it has two possible meanings, either “stuffed” or “puffy,” perhaps in reference to the fillings and how pupusas puff up after cooked.

Our Pipil ancestors filled them with ground red beans, vegetables, blossoms, and seafood. When the Spanish arrived in the first part of the 16th century they introduced new ingredients such as cheese and pork, and as a result, new varieties like the Pupusa Revuelta (Mixed) emerged.

 

In 2005, the Salvadoran government issued legislation designating the Pupusa the national dish of El Salvador. They are simply delicious and showcase the artisan quality of our culinary traditions.

I will teach you how to prepare each filling step by step.

Baking Bread with Artisan Baker Lucio Mejia
 
Lucio Mejia is an artisan bread baker with 8 years of experience baking bread in many of the best bakeries in Northern California, including Tartine, M.H. Bread and Butter and Base Camp Bakery. Lucio has focused primarily on sourdough and naturally levained breads and using a variety of whole grains which are local and heritage varieties. He is inspired by the potential of using only a few ingredients in combination with time and temperature to create a vast array of flavor and texture profiles. Despite working for years in professional bakeries with state of the art equipment, Lucio began baking at home, and has never lost touch with the practice of making a single loaf in his home kitchen to share with his family and friends.

 

Artisan bread workshop will cover how to make a traditional artisan loaf in a home oven that can rival what is on display at your best local bakery. We will use recipes for both sourdough and commercial yeast, each designed to maximize flavor and be approachable to the beginning baker. More advanced and intermediate techniques will be discussed and Lucio loves geeking out about bread, he will gladly help any more experienced bakers wanting to take their loaves to the next level. A portion of sourdough levain will be available to each person who attends the workshop.
