Saga hosts Central American Cuisine cook-off
The Saga Humane Society delighted their supporters with the best of Central American cuisine and live music during their Annual Central American Cook-off. Hosted at the popular El Fogon Restaurant on Tuesday, September 29th, the fundraising event saw entries from Central American and Mexican recipes. The event also included raffles and recognition prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd best dishes. The monthly cook-off raises much needed funds for Saga’s Spay/Neuter Initiative Program (SNIP) Campaign, as well as awareness for the work Saga does in the community.
The many dishes ranged from a Mexican Enchilada Pie to Pulled Pork to the Belizean delicacy Rice and Beans. For a contribution of $20, attendees had the opportunity to sample all the entries. Dishes included: Nancy Nida’s (Sotheby’s) Nicaraguan Pulled Pork with a twist, Pineapples Restaurant’s Enpanadas de Platano con Frijoles from Costa Rica, Rosemary Smith and Judy Allen’s Mexican Enchilada Pie, Maria Lima’s (Banana Beach Resort) tamales from Guatemala, Letty Hernandez (Sew What) Honduran Enchiladas, Carolina Gonzalez and Terry and Michele Colbert’s Nuegados de Yuca con Queso from Panama, and of course El Fogon’s Rice and Beans with Stewed Chicken representing Belize.
