Description

My love and adoration for the beautiful island of Puerto Rico and my trip last summer to Thailand and Vietnam is behind this menu. This Puerto Rican/Southeast Asian influenced dinner is something I've wanted to do for quite some time because I have always felt that these cuisines mash-up beautifully; the Thai and Vietnamese flavors of this menu bring the umami and some heat while the Puerto Rican goodness is packed with garlic, sofrito and all the sauce (growing up on Puerto Rican food was a blessing).

Southeast Asian cuisine taught me how to love the fiery and the sweet and how to balance it all out with citrus and herbs. Puerto Rican style of cooking taught me how to put lots love and flavor (and garlic!) on a plate. I hope you feel this, too.

Please note: while I always consider vegetarians and allergies when I build menus, it was important to me that this menu featured pork, beef, and fish. Menu also includes peanuts. No substitutions, please.


ADDRESS WILL BE DISCLOSED AFTER PURCHASE. Please provide an email address where I can send you the details. Thank you!
