Culture Kitchen Fridays: Venezuelan Cooking in the Sonoran Desert

Barbara Eiswerth of Iskashiita Refugee Network and Maria Magliani, a recent asylee from Venezuela, demonstrate Crema de Auyama (cream of squash/pumpkin soup) and Venezuelan arepas. This soup recipe is simple and easy to adapt to other squash or vegetables found in local gardens. Arepas are an omnipresent part of the Venezuelan table and Maria shares her lifelong-honed technique for forming the dough into the Venezuelan staple.
