Peeling Orlando at Cuba Libre Making empandas-tasting rums and with Orlando top food bloggers

April 16, 2015 at 2:29 PM

 

 

CELEBRATE NATIONAL EMPANADA DAY AT CUBA LIBRE

WITH $1 EMPANADAS, A MONTH-LONG LOBSTER EMPANADA SPECIAL AND A HANDS-ON EMPANADA MAKING CLASS 

 

We chat with Executive chef Jose Gonazlez as he shows us how to make your favorite empandas. 

 

 

After learning how to make mojitos and empandas we move to taste and learn about RUMS!! 

 

 

Meet your Orlando top bloggers!! We chat with Christina from www.goepicurista.com and Lisa Wilk from www.tastecooksip.com 

 

 

 

 Make sure to visit Cuba Libre and find out about all their activities on this Empanada Month, April 2015. 

ORLANDO, FL – This AprilCuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar (Pointe Orlando, 9101 International Drive, 407-226-1600) will celebrate National Empanada Day with an entire month’s worth of the delicious Cuban savory pastries.  Throughout the month, the restaurant will feature a special Lobster Empanada for $9 in honor of the holiday.  On the actual day of celebration, Wednesday, April 8, they will offer their signature Mamá Amelia’s Empanadas for just $1 each during Happy Hour, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.; then, on Thursday, April 23beginning at 6:30 p.m., the restaurant will host a hands-on Empanada Making Class for 30 lucky guests to learn the secrets of their famous “Empanada Ladies” who prepare the signature pastries each evening for service.

 “I’m very excited to expand our National Empanada Day offerings: this year, we’re not just celebrating with our annual $1 empanada happy hour, but we’re also offering a festive and delicious Lobster Empanada special, plus inviting a limited number of guests to learn how we prepare, fill and enjoy these delicacies,” says Executive Chef Jose Gonzalez.  

First things first: from April 1 until April 30, guests can enjoy the limited-edition Lobster Empanada, a jet-black version of the famous pastry that is lavishly stuffed with lobster meat and based on a fan-favorite recipe from when Cuba Libre Philadelphia first opened 14 years ago.  Then, on Wednesday, April 8, Cuba Libre will honor National Empanada Day with $1 empanadas throughout their Happy Hour, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.  The bar will also feature drink specials, including $5 Mojitos and Caipirinhas and $4 Sangria, Wine and Beer to complement the empanadas.  

All of Cuba Libre’s popular empanadas are based on Chef-Partner Guillermo Pernot’s mother’s recipes, passed down from when he was a child and could often be found rolling dough or peeling potatoes to contribute to the family dinner.  Each empanada is folded in a distinct way, so that guests can discern their fillings even before taking that tempting first bite.  

Then, on Thursday, April 23, a limited group of guests will learn how to create their own empanadas with Chef Gonzalez and his talented kitchen crew.  Seating in the class is restricted to just 30 guests to ensure that attendees get the personal attention and experience necessary to become empanada pros; tickets are available online (click to purchase) for $50 per person, including tax and gratuity, and include personalized instructions and all necessary materials to make Cuba Libre’s beef, chicken and cheese empanadas.  In addition, guests will enjoy the restaurant’s signature mojitos, plus complimentary Mariquitas Cubanas, house-made tropical chips served with a trio of dips.  

Cuba Libre started as a vibrant window into a distant culture in Philadelphia’s Old City more than 14 years ago.  Today, their four locations in Philadelphia, PA; Atlantic City, NJ; Orlando, FL and Washington, DC are transportive restaurants whose decor and menu evoke the forbidden pleasures of Cuba.  

Cuba Libre Orlando serves dinner daily from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m.  Happy Hour is available every day from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.  The bar is open until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.  For more information, or to make a reservation, please call (407) 226-1600, visit www.cubalibrerestaurant.com, follow them on Twitter (@CubaLibreORL) and “like” them on Facebook.
