Cooking with our Saints

Come cook with our Saints at St. Veronica Catholic Church in Chantilly. On Saturday, October 22, we are honoring St. Rose of Lima, the Patron Saint of Peru. The guest speaker is Miriam Calvo, a Peruvian Catholic, who will be speaking about Catholic life in Peru and teaching us some of the native dishes of her country, including Papa a la HuancaĆ­na and Lomo Saltado.

St. Rose, born in 1586 as Isabel de Herrara, focused her life on God and devotion to the Blessed Mother and Christ. St. Rose joined the Third Order of St. Dominic. Throughout her life, she offered much charity, time and energy to the poorest people in Lima.

The two-and-a-half-hour Saturday afternoon classes include hands-on instruction, kitchen safety tips, a chance to sit down and eat what students cooked, and a take-home folder of the recipes so participants can cook “saintly” meals at home. Price: $15 per session. Class size limited to 12. Time: 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at St. Veronica Catholic Church, 3460 Centreville Rd., Chantilly. For information or to register, please call Sandy Greeley, 703-471-6454 or email at
