Arriba, Arriba, Arepas!
Food & Drink
You swore you would satisfy your grown-up palate and take on more interesting cooking as your New Years Resolution… 2005. Instead, you still find yourself reaching for the trusty jar of peanut butter and goldfish as a quick dinner fix.
Get inspired by taking a culinary journey to Colombia, where arepas are versatile, easy-to-make (with the right tricks and instruction) and enjoyed at all times of the day.
In this class, Dabblers will be making homemade arepas and choosing from an assortment of sweet and savory fillings. Get creative, come hungry and leave with the confidence to say bye-bye PB&J (at least on a daily basis).
