Learn to Make Alfajores
Gather your team online to make Lomo Saltado, Peru's famous stir-fry. You will be guided by Chef Maribel who was nominated for Best Chef by the James Beard Foundation for her Peruvian restaurant, Yuyo, based in Austin, TX. After making thousands of Lomo Saltados at her restaurant, Chef Maribel will show you how to make the perfect char on your meat with a Peruvian flare. She will also share her work and life experience in Lima, rich with the historical context of the Chinese immigrant influence in Peruvian cuisine. Your team members will be transported for a cultural experience right in their own homes.
In this class, Chef Maribel will walk you through the steps to baking her favorite Latin American cookie - the alfajor. Chef Maribel fell in love with this cookie upon her first visit to Argentina and has sought to perfect her recipe ever since. No baking experience needed!

Cooking to me is about sharing life experiences and traditions with food. I'm motivated by the stories behind cooking and expressing that story into the flavor of the food. In 2017, my brother and I created Yuyo Peruano restaurant, Austin’s first and only contemporary Peruvian restaurant, as a celebration of my culinary immersion throughout South America, where I connected with the people and the culinary community from Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Uruguay. I was recognized by the James Beard Foundation with a Best Chef nomination in 2019. I welcome you to my humble kitchen in Austin, Texas, where I demonstrate and share cooking tips, recipes, and stories from my culinary journey.
