Chef Rosa will teach you some of her favourite Venezuelan dishes followed by a wonderful sit down meal.

The Migrateful family is growing!!

This summer we trained a brand new cohort of refugee and migrant chefs based in Canterbury, Margate and Brighton. After completing the 12 week Migrateful chef training course, they are now ready to teach.

This cookery class will be taught by the wonderful Venezuelan chef Rosa at The Margate Caves in Margate, Kent.

This small-scale class for 12 participants is not socially distanced.

This is a family style cookery class where we will collectively prepare 4 dishes in 2 teams. Chef Rosa will divide the class into 2 groups with each one responsible for creating the dishes. You are also free to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes. Chef Rosa will recap each of the dishes throughout the evening and at the end of the class so that everyone can learn about all of the dishes. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.

A sample menu of the dishes that will be taught include:

  • Cachapas (Corn Pancakes) with Sofrito (Black bean stew)
  • Pico de gallo (Fresh Tomato Salsa)
  • Bollos Pelones (Venezuelan beef dumplings with tomato sauce)
  • Vegetarian Bollos Pelones (Venezuelan Quorn dumplings with tomato sauce)
  • Tequenos (Cheese sticks wrapped in a ribbon of dough)

This menu caters to both vegetarians and those who eat meat. Allergens include: eggs, milk, gluten, , and celery . Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements!

We will also be selling our beautiful Migrateful aprons! You can purchase them when booking your ticket (pick it up at the event) or before the cookery class starts at the venue.

A message from our Chef Rosa:

“Hola! My name is Rosa and I am from Venezuela. I was born in the Capital, Caracas. I have so many memories of my beloved city: a concrete jungle with bright blue skies, fluffy clouds and the Avila mountain always green and majestic, making it the perfect postcard!.

At a very young age, my mom introduced me to the joy of gastronomy. As a single mom, I think that was the way she found to bond. We would dine out every Sunday, after she finished work, choosing from our favourite restaurants. Venezuelan gastronomy is very rich and diverse because it has a strong influence of Spain, Italy and Portugal.

I came to the UK at the end of 2018. I have always been a foodie but because I was not allowed to work I had to find a way to cultivate this passion at a lower cost. I started picking up Food Bank parcels and volunteering at the local food club and I discovered that using humble ingredients did not stop me from making delicious and nutritious recipes.

So come and join one of my classes, we will have lots of fun together and you will discover some traditional dishes from Venezuela. “
