Let's make some AREPAS!

Course summary

Everyone is greeted enthusiastically to break the ice and get ready to knead.

We will watch a short film clip explaining the context and culture of Venezuela,  Recognition goes the ingredients, and an explanation of what we will do in the next 3 hours. We will start with the kneading and use traditional Venezuelan music in the background to release tensions and connect with the senses.  We will shape the arepa, learn how to cook it and know when it is ready to eat, the technique to open it, and then how to fill it with the filling we will make while the arepas are cooking.

The best thing is to learn how to eat then, with your hands!
