You are invited to join Chef Kashia Diaz Cave, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, for an evening of flavorful Caribbean Cooking at the Case Memorial Library on Monday, September 24th, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Kashia grew up in a small fishing village. She spent her vacations at her grandfather’s farm. She watched her aunts and uncle bake bread in the dirt oven, spent time with one grandfather farmer and another grandfather fisherman. She ate food from the land, all in the correct season, and these experiences sparked her passion for the culinary arts.
Kashia is a graduate of Lincoln Culinary Institute and the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners in Italy. She is the recipient of numerous awards and her work is recognized on a national and international level in Europe and the Caribbean. She has been featured in the New Haven Advocate and Hartford Courant. She has also appeared on CT News 12 Fairfield County, WFSB/CBS Channel 3 Better CT and the Rachel Ray show.
Kashia is the Executive Director of My City Kitchen, Inc. As a non-profit group, its mission is to instill healthy eating habits, build self-esteem, foster a sense of belonging, teach kids about food, and encourage them to take an interest in what they eat, where it comes from, and how to prepare it.
The Friends of the Library is pleased to offer this culinary experience, but seating is limited. Register at the library, call 203.891.2170 or register online.
