Soups & Stews of the Caribbean
February 2 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us on an exploration and hands-on class of making Asopao and Sancocho. Asopao is a rice-focused stew known to the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, and is a tasty and affordable way to incorporate fall and winter vegetables. You’ll make traditional and vegetarian versions that begin with making your own fresh Sofrito for maximum flavor.
Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to class as we start right on time.
Special Note: The class is located in the greenhouse and classroom at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park. You may register online or in person.
The Hort’s NYDigs program is supported by The Burpee Foundation.
