Pamela Arrigada grew up eating dulces chilenos, or Chilean sweet treats, in La Serena on the north coast of Chile, a place where any time is a good time for a dulcecito — a philosophy we can definitely relate to. Join her in this class where you’ll learn the history and techniques for some classic Chilean sweets. You’ll make alfajores de Maicena (a sandy cookie sandwiched with pisco-spiked dulce de leche); chilenitos (crackers sandwiched with manjar and covered in meringue); alfajores del sur de Chile (crackers sandwiched with a raw sugar, roasted flour, and dried fruit filling); and a play on brazo de “rey” (a soft sponge cake roll) filled with lúcuma whipped cream and topped with meringue.
