Chef Pepin holds class at UM
The Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies University of Miami presents “An Evening of Cuban Cuisine with Chef Pepin” as part of Hispanic Heritage Month. Chef Pepin has taken the entertainment and culinary world by storm by magically combining his knowledge of wonderful recipes with his warm sense of humor. In 1988 he made his television debut, and he presently reaches thousands of homes by way of his radio show, Hasta el Fin con Pepin, a syndicated radio segment that airs on over 100 stations nationwide. He can be seen on such television programs as Univision’s Despierta America and M.G.M. Television’s La Cocina del Chef Pepin, both of which are seen in the United States, Latin America and Europe. The class and dinner, on Wednesday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. at Casa Bacardi, will cost $40. For more information, or to RSVP, contact 305-284-CUBA.
