Reduce heat to low. Cover with lid and simmer until most of the liquid has been absorbed -- between 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff the quinoa with a fork to separate the grains, and serve. Week two prep work details For de chickpeas if you are not using canned or cooked chickpeas you have to soak overnight the chickpeas inside of a bowl full of water, at least 3 fingers over the level of the chickpeas. When the time is over, change the water of the chickpeas and put them inside of a big pot full of water and a tea spoon of salt, set the heat at medium and cover with a lit until the chickpeas are soft, you can keep then inside of the liquid to preserve them.

Chef Carlos more than met our expectations, he exceeded them! What a night! He led our group in our finale event to celebrate Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month. Chef Carlos prepared two entrees with a Cuban flair, per our request. We made "All Out Pork Cuban Sandwiches" and "Shrimp Enchilado.” Both meals were well prepared and his instructions are organized and really easy to follow. The end result was delicious! He's also very entertaining and taught us more about the Hispanic/Latino culture in such an interesting and fun way, you didn't even know you're learning, but you are – about people and food and all the things that bring us together. You forget sometimes that there is a six hour difference, with him instructing from Madrid, but he makes our time together seem flawless and fun. You wish it would never end! If you ever have the opportunity to need a Chef that makes cooking entertaining and you feel better after you see him, than did before, then Chef Carlos Gutierrez is the Chef for you! Salud!

We had a wonderful experience with Chef Carlos! Making fresh pasta looks simple, but it's tricky. We learned a lot about the "tricks of the trade" when it comes to measuring, kneading, rolling and cutting the noodles. Will definitely do it again. P.S. The pesto is delicious.
