Gloria Dominguez, Tamarindo
Sunday, May 21, 2017, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
Join us at CUESA’s Jack London Square Farmers Market in Oakland for a cooking demo with Gloria Dominguez of Tamarindo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Jack London Square Farmers Market.
With over 25 years of culinary experience, Chef Gloria has been able to say that she has explored food from the roots of the cuisine of her native land of Mexico in travel to the many kitchens of locals and even on working with top chefs in their kitchens. Taking her native flavors around the world, Chef Gloria has travel to other countries like to Italy, Vatican City, where she was invited to cook an event “Navidad en Mexico” representing the state of Michoacan.
Chef Gloria has participated in seminars with Oaxacan chefs taking culinary classes with some of the finest chefs of the region. One of the biggest thrills was being able to have the honor to cook with the locals in their homes to learn and experience food the ancestral way. The Yucatan Peninsula and of course Mexico City were great influences when Chef Gloria opened her current restaurant in 2005 with her Architect son Alfonso, whom designed the restaurant, Tamarindo Antojeria, Oakland, California. The menu brings together the flavors of all Chef Gloria’s culinary adventures throughout the years from her native land of Mexico.
All demos take place at the CUESA Classroom (adjacent to the info booth at Broadway & Water Street) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
