Since Mirta can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!
Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!
In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Mirta will guide you through making two of her family recipes. First you'll learn how to transform basic ingredients into delicate gnocchi al pesto (pillowy soft potato pasta tossed in homemade fresh pesto), a recipe Mirta learned from her mom. Then you'll learn how to make zesty salad made with tomatoes, onions, avocado, and oregano..

It was nothing short of exceptional - Mirta was the most amazing, genuine host, and the food and cultural sharing made the experience. It was one of my favorite, most memorable days in the past six months. I cannot rave enough about how extraordinary the experience was, in large part due to Mirta.”
