Cinco de Mayo is on the horizon and we're gearing up here a Y.U.M. Chefs! This week we made a Mexican-inspired feast! We started with some masa, which we mixed up, rolled into balls, and smashed in a tortilla press.
Then, once our tortillas were nice and flat, Chef Katy grilled them a la plancha to crispy, golden perfection.
But what are chips without dip, you might ask?! Don't worry, we had dips galore! We mashed up avocados into guacamole; we diced tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, red bell peppers, and mango to make a pico de gallo; we even made a cheeseless 'queso' with nutritional yeast and potatoes! Que rico!
Best of all, we were able to enjoy our bounty while we sipped sour orange agua fresca, made with oranges picked from the tree in our garden. At Y.U.M. Chefs, we value the act of sitting together and enjoying a meal, of sharing in a beautiful and collaborative moment, that nourishes not only our bodies but also our souls.
