Debbi Truchan will be putting on her chef’s hat on Tuesday, May 14.
She has many other hats she wears – artist, writer, potter, puppeteer and recreational therapist are just some of her other talents – but next week she’ll be stepping up to the stove.
A longtime resident of Little Cayman, Debbi has written cook books and grows many of her own herbs at home. Next week, this veritable Jack – or Jane – of all trades is coming over to Grand Cayman to team up with the National Trust to show us how it’s done in the kitchen.
Debbie will be hosting the next NT cooking class, which takes place at the Discovery Centre in Camana Bay.
She’s got all sorts of delicious dishes in store, featuring weird and wonderful local ingredients.
Those attending will learn how to prepare and cook local conch, accompanied by dishes that sounds like they came from a children’s fantasy story: sand pear salad and stuffed plopnut flowers are on the menu – along with some more familiar favourites, like plantains in caramelised rum sauce and swanky.
The cost is $30 for members, $35 for nonmembers. Space is limited so email [email protected] to reserve your spot today.
