Students of Asuncion Arnedo-Aldrich’s Spanish 231, Gastronomy and Health in the Hispanic World, have discovered a new tapa, botana, or platillo!
Students cooked Spanish and Mexican tortillas to experience the two tortilla differences. Instead of the traditional French baguette that usually accompanies Spanish tortilla, they improvised and combined the two, creating the first “Tortilla Iberoamericana” in history! Some added pesto and cheddar to experiment with more flavors—a vanguard piece for the history of this class. ¡Sabroso!
