Culinary Adventures in Latino Culture


Classes will be conducted in Spanish and are intended for students looking for language immersion and opportunities to boost their knowledge of Latino culture through culinary adventures. Real-life learning and conversation with native speakers will be a central focus, and for that reason group size will be kept to a minimum.  We'll be making tortillas, pupusas, tamales, meeting Langley Park's own mural artist and more! 

Upcoming Schedule:

Instructor Michelle Dudley says "I hope to share my appreciation of Spanish/Latino culture with others in a friendly learning environment and to serve as a cultural liaison for anyone interested in crossing language barriers into our local Latino community and beyond. In addition to having a B.A. in Spanish and working in the Latino community since 2008, I've been a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala and have lived in Spain and Argentina. I hold a Master's Degree in Intercultural Communication, and am a certified ESOL teacher with teaching experience at Montgomery College."
