Puerto Rico’s Markets

published 9 years ago by Videos from The Culinary Institute of America

When exploring culinary Puerto Rico, what better place to start than a market? And who better to serve as our guide than Chef Wilo Benet, A Culinary Institute of America graduate and one of the island’s premier chefs whose restaurant Pikayo is a beacon to all who visit in search of the tastes of Puerto Rico. He’ll give us a basic course in the Puerto Rican market basket at the Plaza del Mercado, a small, but lively market in the Santurce area of San Juan. Here, we get our first look at the bounty of this region where sometimes the freshest ingredients like bananas and avocados are growing outside the back door.
