Attendees will prepare a South American-inspired menu alongside Fernanda Tapia, a “Chopped” champion and the culinary mastermind behind Newton’s Comedor. The list of dishes includes sweet potato hummus, spiced dipping bread, ceviche, sugar pea and potato salad, marinated chicken breast, and avocado-jalapeno dressing. Once you’re at the table, a pre-taped version of the company’s performance will play for diners’ delight.
