Nora Landa Frazier, a native of Lima, Peru, will conduct a free, interactive cooking program at 11 a.m. at the Menlo Park Library. The event will consist of a hands-on demonstration, Q&A, and tasting party.
Reportedly originating in pre-Columbian times, causa exists today in countless creative variations — it is often layered with avocado, chicken, tuna, or even shellfish.
Ms. Frazier began her culinary teaching career at the American International School of Lima. She now resides in the Bay Area, where she shares Peruvian history through her presentation of traditional, national dishes.
The event is hosted by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. It is part of the library's adult summer reading program, which offers special programs and prizes to adult readers.
Participation in the cooking program is limited to adults age 18 and over. The program will take place in the downstairs room of the library at 800 Alma St.
