About Evanice Holz

Evanice Holz is the chef and owner of Señoreata, a modern Cuban cuisine restaurant in LA. She is the first plant-based and Latina winner of Food Network's Great Food Truck Race. Señoreata has been named one of the top vegan restaurants in LA by The Los Angeles Times and focuses on culturally relevant, re-imagined heritage food.

Objective

Learn the most addictive foods in Cuban and Caribbean cuisine, the pastelitos! In this class you will learn from a demo on how to make sofrito, the base of most Cuban and Caribbean dishes using the trinity, onions, garlic, and bell peppers to make plant based picadillo to fill our pastelitos de carne, or ‘Meat Pies’. As a collective, we will make sofrito, picadillo, meat pies, and guava cheese pastelitos. We will also learn different techniques for meat alternatives like jackfruit and dehydrated plants.

This class is both demo based and interactive, so come prepared to chop, squeeze, cut pastry dough, and enjoy some of the most nostalgic Cuban food there is!
