Flavors of Venezuela
{A 3-hour interactive demonstration with Adriana López Vermut. This event culminates in dinner served with wine and beer.}
Tickets: $55 for members, $65 for the general public

Adriana López Vermut is passionate about the core ingredients of Venezuelan cuisine. And she wants home cooks to embrace these special foods: plantain, yuca, corn, taro.

In this 3-hour interactive demonstration, she will discuss the history, tradition, and modern applications of these ingredients, and will share her favorite recipes for each.

Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, Adriana López Vermut acquired her love of cooking from her father, a noted Caracas chef, restaurateur and businessman. Adriana studied Cultural Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania.  She started her professional work in the world of start-ups and entrepreneurship.  She worked at Viamericas, a money transfer start-up in Research and Business Development and then as a Research Associate for SpaceVest, a Venture Capital firm funding technology start-ups. After her move to the San Francisco Bay Area, she crossed over to the entrepreneurial side and launched Pica Pica Arepa Kitchen in Napa, California in 2008. She has since opened two other locations in San Francisco, one in the Mission District and the other in the Castro neighborhood. "Pica Pica Arepa Kitchen allows me to share my passion for native Venezuelan cuisine and my personal heritage with the American public, especially those on the West Coast who may be unfamiliar with it," she states.  
Adriana also has a strong interest in education and is involved in the Bay Area as a Board Member to Aim High, a non-profit organization working with middle-school children to prepare them for high-school through intensive summer programs.  She is a Trustee at A.C.T (American Conservatory of Theater) as part of their Education Committee, which has a broad mission to integrate theater in San Francisco schools as well as run one of the country's elite MFA Theater programs.
She lives in San Francisco with her husband and three children.
