Learn to shape corn tortillas by hand from fresh masa and enjoy a Honduran feast with master tortilla maker Lolita Casazza. |
During this 2.5 hour workshop, you will also learn about the history of corn in Mesoamerica, the health benefits of the traditional foods eaten with tortillas, and the cultural role of women in the history of corn. We will make tortillas by hand and with the more modern tortilla press before enjoying a traditional, vegan meal.
Please bring an apron and a kitchen towel to class.
Lolita Casazza was born in Honduras and graduated from the National University of Pedagogy in Tegucigalpa, with a degree in Spanish Language and Literature. Her life has taken her around the world, and during these travels her affinity to her teaching profession prompted her to mentor young high school girls in international food preparation and foreign cultures. She believes that food can be a point to connect with people, even in the most faraway places around the world.
Lolita now calls San Francisco her home and keeps herself busy volunteering on Sundays at the Free Farm Stand and coordinating the school garden program for Slow Food San Francisco.
