Please join us for Mezcla: Mix and Master Cooking Class! We will gather in the beautiful commercial kitchen at Casa Azafrán for some fun conversation, delicious food and new adventures. Learn how to prepare a multi-course Haitian meal while enjoying drinks and plenty of samples. Aprons will be provided for use during the class.
My name is Lamartine Alvarez most call me Lamar. I was born and raised in Haiti. I am married to Patricia and we have 4 kids, age 9, 7, 3, and 2. My passion for cooking started at a very young age. My mother taught culinary art in Haiti and I learned a lot growing up in that environment. I always enjoy entertaining friends and family with my cooking. They usually leave very happy and wanting more.
In august 2010 I start a catering company call Chez Lama Haitian Catering Company. One of my goals is to Promote Haitian Cuisine with the world. I hope that one day Haitian Cuisine will be known like Italian, Mexican, and so many orders. I am excited for this opportunity to teach this class. You are in for a treat.
Come and learn about the culture and why we prepare food the way we do. I hope you will leave that evening saying this is one of the best foods I have tasted in years.
