Philadelphia Museum of Art will host a Venezuelan Food Popup as part of the Chef in Residence Series. From September 30th to October 2nd, indulge in the rich and diverse flavors of Venezuela at the museum.

Pureyo’s popup promises a mouthwatering menu that combines traditional Venezuelan dishes with a modern twist. Here’s a sneak peek at what you can savor during this exclusive event:
Tequeños are a Venezuelan delight you won’t want to miss. These are like cheese sticks, but better. Served with a delectable green mayo dipping sauce, they’re a perfect start to your culinary journey.
