Chef Gina Pacheco
Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Ask any Latino or Latina and they’ll
say their best recipes are the ones that were handed down from one generation
to the next. No doubt, the real sazon
(seasoning) to just about any authentic Hispanic dish comes from wise family
matriarchs who were gifted with the ability to blend the ideal ingredients
coupled with an abundance of pride and joy.
Albertsons is proud to carry on this tradition in their stores by
offering variety of fresh wholesome ingredients to their consumers at a price
that fits their pocketbooks.
In celebration of

her delicious Latin American inspired recipes such as Medallones de Filete de
Res con Mantequilla de Cilantro, y Chipotle (Beef Medallions with Chipotle and
Cilantro Butter) as well as share some of her expert cooking secrets with
consumers. Her bilingual cooking
demonstrations will be held between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m. at the following
