Cooking with a Huskie –
Bob Brinkmann, Ph.D. 



Calling all chefs... Join Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Dr. Robert Brinkmann for a Cooking with a Huskie virtual event. 

Follow along virtually as Dr. Brinkmann creates a delicious meal inspired by homey Venezuela food. Brinkmann will conduct the class with his husband, Mario Gomez, and his mother, Elis Vera de Gomez—two native Venezuelans. The class will be mainly in English, but there will be some Spanish spoken, as well.

The chefs will make a classic Venezuelan-style arepa sandwich, called reina pepiadas, along with some delicious tostones using green plantains that will be served with queso blanco. Recipies for items being made will be sent out in advance if you would like to cook along.
