Learn about two women who changed the face of cooking in Mexico – Vicenta Torres de Rubio and Josefina Velasquez de Leon.

In 1896, Vicenta Torres de Rubio was the first woman to publish a cookbook, Cocina michoacana. For three decades, Josefina Velasquez de Leon led a cooking empire that lasted until the mid-1960s, publishing 140 cookbooks, including the first bilingual cookbook printed in the United States. A tasting will be offered as part of the program. ($25)
