Sabores Open House

Sabores, the Costa Rican food empire (with a magazine, TV shows, and new Centro Gastronomico) is hosting an open house from noon until 7pm, on Saturdays August 11 and August 18 to inaugurate their new Centro Gastronomico. It’s my guess that the open house will include some food and wine tastings, as well as cooking demonstrations.  All are designed to introduce their new Gastro Center, and pump their classes. Located catty-corner to EPA in Escazu, the complex will eventually include a store and small cafe.
