Learn how to make original Mexican masa creations like quesadillas, tlacoyos, sopes, and embedded flower tortillas and join us for an explanation of why 5 de Mayo is also an American holiday. Adriana is also co-author of Celebraciones Mexicanas: History, Traditions and Recipes. Her book will be available for purchase following the demonstration.
