As promised some notes on my Panamanian Cooking Adventure. I am sorry it took me a month to get this to you. But that’s how life is, huh? You always gotta wait for the good stuff!
I was invited by Boquete Gourmet to come to Panama and lead a cooking demonstration. Not one to fear a little adventure– off I traispsed. My concept was to present 6 recipes from classic reastaurants of Hollywood. There is plenty of detail about my choices in previous posts.

Panama City is a 5 1/2 hour flight from Los Angeles. We took the red-eye, so I slept on the plane and it seemed we arrived lickity-split (who slipped that Ambien into my cocktail?) to the Panama City Airport! It is big and modern and easy to navigate. We soon got our rental car and before you knew it, we were on the road. It’s a good thing we got an early start because our destination was still a full 8 hours away by car. We were off to Boquete, and it’s way up (over?) at the Costa Rican border. I am sorry I don’t have photos of this part of the trip, but I was a bit nervous about the cooking adventure and was a little lax on my photography, duties.
