What you'll do
Inspired in the traditional recipes of their home town, chef Amalia will lead the group in a journey through the world of corn, community, traditional food and culture. You will get hands on experience learning how to make organic blue corn tortillas and tetelas from scratch, using the famous and traditional masa from Amlias's Tierra del Sol food cart. At the end, we will sit and enjoy the hot fresh tortillas with some other traditional toppings prepared by Amalia and learn a little more about traditional Oxacan gastronomy.
Amalia, chef and owner of Tierra del Sol, will share her story about learning how to make blue corn tortillas in Oaxaca, Mexico when she was just a young girl. In this hands-on cooking class, you will learn about the richness of the Oaxacan traditional cuisine and how to make blue corn tortillas and telelas from scratch, using the Tierra del Sol's signature blue corn masa. After the class, there will be a fiesta featuring the blue corn tortillas and telelas that you just mastered and Amalia will share some other delicious sides to delight everyone!
