COOKING WITH MASA : Tortillas, Pupusas, Tamales and more
TUE | MAY 23 | 6:30PM - 8:30PM
Masa, made from corn or maiz, as it is traditionally called, is the basis for a wide range of Latin American dishes, including tortillas, tamales, sopes, tostadas and pupusas. Making the masa from scratch is easier than making pancakes and the resulting products excel in flavor and texture compared to the store bought versions. In this hands on class, we’ll be working together in the kitchen to mix up our own masa and then turn it into tortillas, pupusas, and more. Additionally, we will walk through the traditional and ancient process of nixtamalization, which makes maiz not only more delicious but more nutritious. We will discuss appropriate brands, a variety of dishes, and ingredients for seasoning and proper cooking, as we cook up one tasty morsel after another.
