Celebrate Brazil's Valentine's Day! With Elizabete Delfino
A class to celebrate Brazilian Valentine’s Day (6/12) and the World Cup! Elizabete Delfino, a native of Minas Gerais, Brazil, will start the class by serving us her homemade pão de queijo, highly addictive cheese popovers made with cassava flour. Next up, Elizabete will teach us how to make salipicão, a classic Brazilian dish, that is similar to a chicken salad, with peas, corn and topped with salty and crunchy shoestring potatoes and served with mohlo branco (a creamy corn sauce) and plenty of lettuce. This is the ultimate Brazilian comfort food and we can vouch for Elizabete’s delicious version! Then we’ll make delicious sweet treats called brigadeiro, just in time for Valentine’s Day—Brazil’s Valentine’s Day, that is! We’ll whip up these chocolate truffles using locally produced Taza chocolate and a variety of tasty toppings; finally we’ll dress up the little numbers in festive wrappers. After cooking, we’ll sit down to enjoy our Brazilian feast. Each student will leave the class with a small plate of brigadeiro, which can be gifted to a sweetie — or devoured on the way home from class!
