Facilitated by Yadira Garcia and Adriano Espaillat, Jr. (Happy Healthy Latina), and GreenThumb

Learn how to make your own seasonings such as sofrito, sazon, and recao, and avoid the store-bought versions that are filled with high amounts of sodium, preservatives, sugar, artificial fats, and unhealthy oils. This workshop will include a hands-on cooking demonstration and tasting for all ages. We will use and celebrate what we plant in community gardens and supplement from a local farmers market.

Please RSVP on Eventbrite.

This workshop will be offered with Spanish translation.
