Know Islands: A Taste of Puerto Rico
Mayra Feliciano is a native of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, located next to the islands of Cuba and Dominican Republic. She has 27 years of experience teaching Social Studies and Spanish in her native island. She earned her B. A. degree in Social Studies at Interamerican University and her Masters Degree at Caribbean University, both located in Puerto Rico. She moved from Puerto Rico to Bend, Oregon in 2017 to start a new adventure and chapter in her life. Her sister, Delia, also lives in Central Oregon.
A link to view this recording will be available Saturday, May 8 at 1:00 p.m. This is a prerecorded program.
Mayra and Delia Feliciano demonstrate how to cook the traditional Puerto Rican dish mofongo. Full recipe and instructions are available at https://www.deschuteslibrary.org/calendar/event/61700.
Mayra opened and operated Taino, a Taste of Puerto Rico, a food truck in Redmond serving Puerto Rican cuisine. Mayra is very passionate about cooking and sharing her warm and fun culture with others and she wanted to bring more diversity to Central Oregon.
The activities she loves the most are: riding her Peloton bike, going to the gym for resistance training, cooking Puerto Rican, Mexican and foods from around the world, and having a nice walk through any trail around the area while feeling the breeze sweep her hair and soul.
