Puerto Rican Pop-Up Dinner
June 22, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
In 1508, Ponce de León settled in Puerto Rico and introduced Spanish cuisine to the Taínos Indians, whose diet consisted mainly of fruits, vegetables, and fresh fish. Today, the island’s cocina criolla, or Creole cooking, is suffused with complex global flavors drawn from many countries, including West Africa and the United States. For a true taste of the Caribbean, head to Bistro Ten Zero One at the West Palm Beach Marriott.
On June 22, Puerto Rican–born executive chef Christian Quiñones will host a pop-up dinner in the herb garden, where guests can sample savory dishes like lump crab cake on yucca salad as well as garlic shrimp mofongo, an African-inspired recipe made with mashed green plantains, olive oil, garlic, and crunchy pork skin.
Admission costs $10 and covers a cocktail, an amuse bouche, and live musical entertainment. (561-833-1234, bistro1001.com)
