Chef Wheeler del Torro

Jamaican-born Wheeler del Torro is best known in Boston for Wheeler’s Catering & Frozen Dessert Co., his vegan and liquor-laced ice cream company, though these hearty dinners will fuse Afro-Cuban flavors with each guest chef’s cooking style.
Past Barrio dinners have included slow-cooked yuca with citrus-garlic sauce, a ragout with a trio of mushrooms, sweet peppers, and tomatoes, corn cakes with a guava glaze and grilled pineapple,  black and white truffle crostini, and spicy white truffle squash soup.

  1. Opps I should have read more carefully! Here is my (second) comment! My husband and I would love to try this as one of our first dinners out after having our adorable baby girl!

  2. I’ve never tried Afro-Cuban cuisine either, but sounds like a culinary adventure! Brian & I would love to try it!

  3. I look forward to tasting the Afro-Cuban blend! I can only imagine that when you bring elements from both together it will be a delightful escapade.

  4. Never had Afro-Cuban cuisine, but love West African cuisines from Mali and Senegal, love Cuban food, and also love Afro-pop Worldwide on the radio so I would be thrilled to try!

Let's talk style.
