About the Event
Have you ever wanted to make tamales and sip mimosas with a renowned Latin chef? Well, here's your chance, as we celebrate a festive book launch party for beloved San Diego chef Isabel Cruz, whose debut cookbook, Isabel's Cantina, was one of the New York Times' Top Cookbooks of the Year. In her new cookbook, The Latin Table, Isabel, who is known for her innovative and healthy twist on traditional Latin fare, shares her simple, easy-to-make recipes with the Latin flavors you’ll love producing in your own kitchen.
Your Adventure includes a festive evening of tamale making (and eating!), Isabel's signature hibiscus mimosa, tax, gratuity, an autographed copy of The Latin Table, and the opportunity to meet and interact with Isabel, up close and personal in her fabulous Latin-inspired restaurant.
