What you'll do

We will start by discussing what is an arepa, what are the ingredients that go in it, and its role in Venezuelan culture. Then you wash your hands, make your own arepas, and then we will cook them together (they take about 10 minutes to make). We will then stuff them and eat them, with OJ and coffee.

Learn more about Patricia

Patricia

I was born in Venezuela and lived there until I was 25. We eat arepas for breakfast every day of our lives, and sometimes for lunch or dinner when we want a fancy one at a restaurant. Arepas are made of corn, easy to grow in Venezuelan soil, unlike wheat, which requires a colder climate. You could say arepas are our daily bread. Arepas are authentically delicious and easy to make. I love to see the face of anyone who tries them for the first time, and then when they learn they can make it at home. it will be my privilege to introduce you to this delicious food.

What's included

Food
Arepas with a variety of fillings, including vegan and gluten free (if requested), orange juice and coffee. BYOB available.

Where you'll be

The experience will take place at my home, in Chicago, where I have all the ingredients and equipment.
