Team Building Activity - Classic Puerto Rican Cooking

Create a vibrant menu inspired by Puerto Rican cuisine with a touch of European flair.

In this hands-on team building cooking class, Chef Todd teaches your group how to prepare bold Puerto Rican dishes with a nod to the cuisine's Spanish influence. Practice a range of skills from making sauces and stews to frying, braising and more.

Begin by making croquettes with béchamel sauce followed by stewed red beans over rice. The centerpiece of the meal is hearty braised chicken in soffritto sauce. For dessert, make one of Spain’s signature desserts, crema Catalana, a citrus custard spiced with cinnamon and topped with caramelized sugar.

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

Todd and his wife Millie were wonderful guests in our space. They were both incredibly gracious and personable, and of course the menu was delicious. This was not my first time working with a private chef, but certainly the most positive experience I've had. I highly recommend Chef Todd for any engagement.

Chef Todd and his wife did a fantastic job for our private dinner for 2. The meal was fantastic (better than a restaurant!) and Chef Todd and his wife were efficient, polite and gracious. I would highly recommend them for any private chef experience.
