      Hi Ed,
      Thanks for inquiring about a cooking class for your mom. I sent you an email with this information as well.
      We can certainly get her and her friends all set up. The class runs $200 for up to 4 people. To add 2 more, it would be $40 each, so a total of $280 flat fee for 6 people. This would include all food and materials. The class is a mixture of cooking demonstration and participation and of course they get to taste what they cook. Normally the chef designs the class around an introduction to Puerto Rican food – how to prepare plantains in a variety of ways (tostones, mofongo, aranitas, amarillos), Caribbean sauces like sofrito or criollo and then a special main dish of their choice – snapper, lechon, churrasco — whatever they would specifically like to learn.

      Let me know if this answers your questions or if you would like to chat more, feel free to call me at 787-464-2052.
