MEXICAN FIESTA – Gerardo Lopez
The true Taste of Mexico @$120.00pp (Food, Margaritas and Wine)

La Tortilleria has come a long way since 2013 when the aroma of freshly pressed tortillas first filled the air of a quiet back street in Kensington, VIC. Their story begins when Gerardo, a proud Mexican who had settled in Australia, met Diana, a passionate traveller with a love of Mexican food and culture. Longing for the tortillas they loved so much from the villages of Mexico – baked from freshly ground corn kernels – the duo decided to recreate the ancient Aztec craft of ‘nixtamal’ (soaking the corn before stone-grinding) here in Australia, using locally sourced ingredients.

Join us for a Mexican Fiesta where Gerardo and his team will take you through the colourful streets of Mexico and its tortillerias……he will share the history of Mexican food, his origins and the story of La Tortilleria while demonstrating the art of true Mexican food (think ceviche with totopos, real tacos, salsa fresca and guacamole…..). Also learn how to make the perfect Horseshoe Margarita from Herrradura Tequila who will share the art of cocktail mixing with their love of tequila……an afternoon of learning, tasting, sampling and fiesta!
