Description

Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center is honored to house Urban Pilón's special holiday event "Santísimo Sancocho: A Dedication to the Sancocho Lover" on December 16th at 5pm to mark its 100th public meal sharing event. Urban Pilón is a culinary movement to share knowledge with the masses about the great foods of Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and Latin America with efforts to create healthy, unique and innovative dishes that aim to preserve the culture of these while experimenting with the influences of its intersections.

Event details:

Doors will open at 5pm with a traditional parranda, local artesano vendors, drinks (spirits included), and DJ's Soulphonetics spinning AfroCaribbean music. Dinner will be served at 6pm with special programming afterwards.

The menu will feature the following sancochos:

“Sancocho 7 Potencias,” a sancocho made with 7 meats and a medley of “viandas” (root vegetables), herbs, and spices.

“Sancocho Santo,” We will have special guest cook, Melissa DuPrey, paying homage to Loíza by contributing "Sancocho Santo", a variation of the caldo santo recipe made famous by the creator Emma DuPrey de Sterling, Melissa's great Aunt.

“Sancocho Santa Inocencia,” a vegetarian sancocho with a medley of “viandas” (root vegetables) and roasted peppers for added smokiness

“Sancocho Santa Anacaona,” a rendition of Haitian sancocho “joumou” made with beef, Caribbean pumpkin and dumplings. Soup “joumou” is usually eaten in celebration of Haitian independence from the French New Year’s Day.

Price:

$9 Plato Principal- Entreé serving of a sancocho of your choice. Rice and avocado included

$4 Pruebitas- sample serving of any of the other sancochos without the sides.

Musical entertainment: Los Pleneros de Don Segundo | Soulphonetics

The event is FREE, but we ask that you RSVP to the Eventbrite. All food is first come, first serve. Once it's gone, IT'S GONE! So please arrive by before 6pm to purchase your meal ticket if you did not reserve your sancocho via Eventbrite, as dinner will commence on time.
