Para la Naturaleza arrives at your doorstep

If you enjoy cooking or are in the United States, Seasons virtual event is an excellent opportunity to support nature conservation in Puerto Rico.

Connect to a live cooking session with Para la Naturaleza’s community of donors and learn how to use a seasonal ingredient in a special recipe created by two chefs of your choosing.

To complete your experience, we’ll send you an event box of Puerto Rican products and ingredients handcrafted by the chefs.

To join us, be sure to make your reservation before Monday, October 31.

How It Works:

  • Choose the recipe you wish to prepare during the event and reserve your space.
  • We will send you an event box with products made in Puerto Rico and a series of ingredients prepared by the chefs to integrate into the recipes. It’s important that you open the box as soon as you receive it since some products require refrigeration.

  • Download your recipe and make sure you buy any additional ingredients for your recipe.

  • Access the event and cook alongside your chefs.

Once you make your reservation, you will have access to an exclusive WhatsApp group where you can ask the chef any questions and chat with other guests. After the event, you will receive three videos recorded live with the chefs and their recipes. You will also receive the cocktail recipes and a video from Chef Lucía Merino.

Carlos Irizarry

Carlos Irizarry studied filmmaking at the University of Puerto Rico but found his passion for bartending in New York City in Havana Central in 2011. In 2013, Carlos started working in La Factoría under the mentorship of Leslie Cofresí and Roberto Berdecía, and he became part of the global community of hospitality, collaborating with bartenders, brands, and the bar community in general, throughout Latin America, Europe, the United States, and Asia. In 2016, Carlos started a new role as General Manager of La Factoría and to this date, oversees the project. This was pivotal in his career, being responsible for the team and operations during two major crises, Hurricane María (2017) and the latest COVID crisis.
