Learn how to prepare an authentic Cuban meal from drinks to dessert completely from scratch.

A beautiful blend of culinary traditions merge for a classic Cuban meal you'll create in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Charles. If you haven't experienced the lively flavors of Havana, this is your chance to explore across three courses.

First, concoct refreshing mojitos using muddled mint and tangy lime juice, then create a sofritos shrimp martini before preparing your entrée of mojo chicken with black beans, rice and tostones. A decadent white chocolate bread pudding featuring brioche and crème anglaise closes out the class in sweet splendor.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Charles’ class was the favorite cooking class my wife and I have ever taken. He was extremely chill, funny, and allowed us to do as much or as little as we wanted. We learned a ton and had a great time getting to know Chef Charles and his space is amazing. Highly highly recommend.
