A Spoonful of Sofrito: NYC Universal Pasteles Contest!
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.
NYC Universal Pasteles Contest!
Join us on Saturday, November 19th at Sapito's for the 3rd Annual Universal Pasteles Contest! For the folks not in the know, Pasteles are a Puerto Rican/Caribbean delicacy made of green banana, plantain or yucca (cassava) dough that has been filled with a stewed meat and vegetables and boiled in a platano leaf. It's like a Mexican Tamal except it isn't made with cornmeal. They're savory, hearty, and delicious!
Going on its third year, this competition is fun, intense, and entertaining! There's going to be a panel for traditional and nontraditional pasteles, which means you can sample an extraordinary variety of this delicious dish!
Folks, I hope you join me this Saturday and truly indulge in an amazing culinary cook off! This is going to be incredible!
COME TASTE FOR YOURSELF! ¡Buen provecho!
