An Exciting Event

Oct 25, 2012 | From the kitchen of Rose


My long-time friend Maricel Presilla, whose long awaited opus on Latin American cooking has finally arrived, is doing a special event on the evening of Thursday, November 8, at the 92YTribeca to launch the book: Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America.

I just got my ticket and there are a few more still available from the website or call 212-601-1000.

Maricel is a brilliant speaker as well as writer. She is the chef-owner of Zafra and Chucharamama, in Hobokon, NJ. The event is $32 (or more depending on the choice of seating) and includes a tasting of her wonderful food.

Aloha Rose:
I posted on my blog about your Leeward CC demonstration --- www.gloriagarvey.com ... it is the first or second post on the blog.

It was nice to meet and talk to you. You were an inspiration, I think, and those young chefs loved it!

I haven't purchased this book yet but if her "The New Taste of Chocolate" is anything to go by, then this may be interesting. That book placed her name on the world map of chocolate. Before it, I didn't know my criollo from my barlovento. Now I am an educated chocolate snob, and all the happier for it.


you are such a generous and good-hearted sport!


Dear Rose,

Many thanks for the generous post. I just talked to the organizers of 92Y and we are moving to a larger room to accomodate more people. So please let your followers know. Your people are my kind of people and I would love to feed them and entertain them with stories of my journeys throughout Latin America.

Much love,
