Cooking Demonstration: Guamanian Food

Monday, April 26, 2021

This month, we’ll learn to make a twist on a Guamanian classic!

Cook along, if you like, as local chef George Perez shows us how to make his take on a dish from his native Guam.

Chef Perez will tell us about the influences on Guam’s cuisine, as he demonstrates step-by-step how to make island-inspired meatballs in a creamy coconut milk gravy. The dish is a spin on a classic Guamanian dish of Tinaktak, which is ground beef in coconut milk with vegetables.
