A while ago, Jan went to Napa and came back raving about Pica Pica’s arepas. She demanded that I learn how to make these South American pocket breads. I did my best, based only on her description and what I could find on the internet. Last week, we went up to San Francisco and I actually got to try one of Pica Pica’s arepas. I decided to try to make them again.

Jan had been going on about the stuffed arepas that she had had at Pica Pica. You can fill these corn bread pockets with almost anything. I want to make my filling Venezuelan, but this was for a weekday meal, so I did not want to start from scratch.

Jan went to Sonoma a few weeks ago and while she was there she went to a Venezuelan restaurant, Pica Pica. She came back raving about arepas, Venezuelan corn pocket breads. I was ordered to learn how to make them.
