To continue our Cuban kitchen fiesta, we’re spending the afternoon focused on a favorite dessert – flan! This creamy and sweet concoction of eggs, milk and caramel is light and perfect for the summer. Come join us in the kitchen as we prepare the classic version as well as tropical flan flavors where everyone will make a few different kinds to enjoy and take home.
This class is geared to those who enjoy flan and would like to learn how to prepare a classic recipe along with the opportunity to make a few variations. We will cover the ingredients, techniques in preparing and baking and enjoy how versatile this dessert really is. By taking this class, you’ll have a greater appreciation of flan and custards in general where I hope you'll be inspired to continue to make this at home for friends and family!
