The Art of Tortilla-making | Workshop | Sunday 26th May


A big thank you to all participants who took part in our tortilla-making workshop on Sunday 26th May. We made, we drew, we ate. On the menu were Salvadoran filled tortillas – pupusas, and a selection of Mexican antojitos (snacks) thick gortidas, sopes and bean filled tlacoyos. Photos here.
