Gastronomer schedule

for 2019



Working in conjunction with Tiyya, Marc and Sherri Nussbaum will host chef Maria Esther Galban and a meal of authentic Venezuelan cuisine.

On March 15, OLLI Gastronomers will be treated to a Venezuelan menu including arepas with 4 different fillings: including traditional black beans, scrambled egg con sofrito, and others.  We'll also have a mixed salad w/raspberry dressing, and coconut mousse for dessert.

Chef Maria Esther will  talk to us about her menu, about Venezuela, and her journey here to the United States. 

Tiyya, nominated by KCET as a Local Hero organization, honored by LA mayor Garcetti, and recognized as Peacemakers of Orange county, is the only nonproit in LA/OC that focuses on refugee youth, while helping the entire family.

Please bring your own preferred beverage, and don't forget to drop your check in the mail soon!
