This is something we had always talked about when visiting other cultures with such strong emphasis on their food. It seemed that we were always going home and trying to recreate what we ate because we loved it so much. This time we thought we would go ahead and take a little cooking class that taught us how. And boy are we glad we did! Isa showed us how to pick out good avocados and introduced us to a new fruit we had never seen nor heard of before. She showed us how to make tortillas and had us doing it in no time. We talked while we chopped and created a wonderful meal and she was very generous with her knowledge and let us pick here brain. We had a very nice time and the food was delicious.
