The Mother of Puerto Rican Menus
Chef Monti is cooking with one known to many as the “mother of Puerto Rican Cuisine” tonight, Chef Giovanna Huyke. Together, they are celebrating Mothers in all forms. We celebrate Chef Monti’s Abuela (grandmother) while making her timeless Sorrullos - hand-rolled corn and cheese fritters that are served with spicy dipping sauce, and Dulce de Lechosa, spiced and candied papaya. And Chef Giovanna Huyke puts her spin on her mother’s famous Farmer’s Rice, a hearty rice dish packed with bacon and peas, which is topped with seasoned pork and chicken.
