The Art of the Tortilla

Corn is the most important food in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The base of the Sierra Madres is populated with small rural villages where most households grow their own corn rations for the year. This corn, a diet staple, will be used for everyday tortillas and sopes as well as a thickener for special occasion moles (sauces) that the cuisine of Oaxaca is famous for. In our Street Food class this week we made tortillas on a traditional comal, paired it with spicy salsa from our mortar and pestle and Oaxacan string cheese (quesillo) and washed it down with our hibiscus margaritas!! There is no better way to get to know a culture than through its food. For more information about our cooking classes:
