Mexico’s Street Food: ​Antojitos using ​Masa

This is a hands-on, interactive class that will introduce you to making ​nixtamal​, grinding corn into ​masa​, and making common street food dishes using fresh ​masa.

In this class, you will learn how to make ​nixtamal​ and ​masa​, and then use ​masa​ as the backbone to various ​antojitos​ found throughout Mexico. Using one ingredient, ​masa​, to make various small street food snacks, you will learn about one of the essential ingredients of the Mexican kitchen as you coax flavor from simple everyday ingredients.

Afterward, we will gather around the table to enjoy the feast you have created with your classmates.
