I wanted to give everyone a heads up that The Casa Azafrán Community Center is offering cooking classes. I have signed up for the newsletters and will keep you up to date as I find out about events and classes being held.
The most current class is:
COSTA RICA!
Please join us in Mesa Komal, the commercial kitchen at Casa Azafran, for the International Cooking Club! Come ready for some fun conversation, delicious food and new adventures!  Aprons will be provided for use during the class.
To start, he will guide you through a  Heart of Palm Ceviche for an appetizer.  Then you will learn how to make Caldo Verde – black bean soup.  The entree will be a typical meal - Casado - a combination of rice, beans, fried yuca and barbudos.  To finish the meal, you will enjoy some tropical fruit in the form of a Maracuyá Flan.  ¡Qué delicioso!
Escorting us through this Costa Rican meal will be Raul Garcia and his mother, Maria Mendez…

My name is Raul Garcia. I’ve been in the food industry for about seven years. I currently run the kitchen at Finezza Italian Bistro in West Meade.  I was blessed not to only grow up around great cooks such as my mom (Maria Mendez) and grandmother; but to grow up in such a beautiful place.
Costa Rica is a tiny country located between Nicaragua and Panama. It’s a country with a lot of ethnic groups which definitely show in its cuisine.  Costa Rican cuisine can be best described as simple, humble, and of course delicious.  During this time together I’d like to introduce a few of the typical dishes. Food that brings memories of home and family. Things I grew up eating.
