A seated dinner, prepared by Nico Vera. Wine and beer will be served.
Friday, May 30, 6:30-8:30pm Tickets: $25
Join local chef Nico Vera for a night of a classic Peruvian food! Throughout the evening Nico will be talking about the history of these dishes, while a slide-show presents photographs from hi recent trip to Peru. And, of course, a criollo dinner would not be complete without some Afro-Peruvian tunes playing on the radio.
The evening's menu is inspired by the flavors of spring, and will feature Seco de Cordero, a Peruvian lamb stew, alongside steamed rice, frejoles and a salad of seasonal greens.
