Festival Puertorriqueño

Molly Barnes, an Eau Claire teacher of Puerto Rican heritage, and her friend, Jake Lindgren, are planning a culinary experience based on Molly's great grandmother's recipes in order to raise money to send to Puerto Rico. The island is still struggling to bounce back from the September 2017 devastation of Hurricane Maria, We have teamed up to host a 4 course Puerto Rican meal that will also include a short presentation on the current state of the island.  

The menu is gluten free; contains dairy; vegetarian upon request (email mollybarnes1973@gmail.com)

Aperitivo: Surrullitos (corn fritters) & Tostones (fried plantain), Guava paste with fresh white cheese
Soup: Asopao de Gandules
Main: Piñón (Puerto Rican "lasagna") &  rice & beans
Dessert: Flan & Tembleque (coconut pudding)
Cash bar serving wine, beer and cocktails

Each ticket is $50 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Hispanic Federation and their relief efforts in Puerto Rico. A cash bar with wine and Lazy Monk beer will be available.

Please join us for a wonderful evening of great Puerto Rican food and music  - and maybe even dancing!!  Tickets available here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3570127
