The Ancient Art of Tortillas

Traditional cook Benedicta Alejo Vargas invented a three-corn tortilla with red, blue and yellow native corn varieties from Michoacan. She will explain the ancient technique of nixtamal and the mysticism related to these corn varieties from the perspective of Purepecha indigenous culture. Chef Alfonso Rocha Robles will join her and prepare tastes featuring traditional foods from Mexico.

This workshop will partially be in Spanish with English translation.
