with Chef Ana Saenz of The Magical Spatula
HKS is proud to present a cooking class series in partnership with Chef Ana Saenz who will take you on a culinary tour of Latin America! The main focus will be on desserts and baked dishes from different Latin regions, but will also have some of Chef Ana's favorite savory dishes thrown in as a nod to her own heritage. Haiti is the next stop in this delectable series. Chef Ana will prepare Haitian Marinad, a crispy deep fried fritter for guests to enjoy as an appetizer. In the hands on portion of the class, participants will follow Chef Ana's instruction to make Soup Joumo -a delicious stew made with beef and squash that is traditionally eaten on Haitian Independence Day. Wrap up class with a sweet treat - Haitian Pain Patate, a delectable sweet potato pudding! Both savory and sweet dishes to get the best of Haiti! Recipes will be provided.
*All class ticket sales are final. No refunds or credit transfers to other classes are available.*
MEET THE CHEF:
Chef Ana Sáenz, a native of Costa Rica, started baking when she was 4 years old with her grandmother (her inspiration to start her business, The Magical Spatula). She baked all of Ana’s birthday cakes until she was a teenager and thus began Ana’s passion for baking and eventually she decided to make a career out of it. The Magical Spatula was created when she began at Brightwater Culinary School 3 years ago, mainly baking for friends and family. In January 2022 she officially decided to open to the public and hasn’t looked back! Her offerings include custom cakes, fresh pastries, delicious desserts and much more! Chef Ana bakes with high quality and fresh ingredients from local sources and also offers a variety of recipes (some from Costa Rica, some from her grandmother, and some other traditional French/Italian sources). She also offers gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and low carb alternatives. The Magical Spatula incorporates different products for every lifestyle and season in its menu without losing Chef Ana’s beautiful Latin culture.
