Gabriella Reginato Studio Cocina Workshop

Anytime is a good time to learn how to cook, but with the holidays approaching it seems almost vital! Parties and family gatherings are an opportunity to show your chef’s skills in the kitchen. Dare to impress with mouthwatering desserts, healthy alternatives, and big dishes that will leave everyone at your dinner table delightfully satisfied.

Gabriella Reginato, owner of Studio Cocina in La Romana, is organizing workshops throughout October to get you cooking like a pro in no time. By the time Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around, friends will be asking YOU how you put that dish together so spectacularly.

Recently we joined Gabriella and Zamira Logroño of Le Spot by Cinco for a Chef’s Café de la Leche and it was every bit as tasty as we expected, if not more! The workshop was a great way to learn with friends and get the 411 from qualified instructors. Do yourself a favor and get brewing in the kitchen…
