A Cooking Class with Chef Diane Perkins
The cooking class with Chef Diane Perkins was wonderful! Thank you so much to Karen Squires, Julia Chacon, and of course Chef Perkins.
The group is considering a follow-up class that emphasizes Spanish sauces and the Spanish Gateau Basque. Contact Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org
or (505) 470-7210 if you are interested in participating.
The date and location have yet to be determined, but thank you to Tricia Erazo Penn for working so hard to arrange something perfect!
Eve Cobos has generously volunteered to host a potluck in her Albuquerque home in January or February. The date will be announced soon.
The location and date are still to be determined. But, we have identified a film, Aupa Etxebeste! A comedy set in the Basque Country, the film follows the exploits of Patricio Etxebeste. From IMDB: “Patricio Etxebeste owns a beret-making factory. An important local figure, he is standing for mayor in the upcoming elections. What nobody knows is that he is completely ruined and can’t even pay for his yearly holiday.”
More information coming soon, but in the meantime, start practicing your version of “Basque Popcorn”!
