Tico Cooking class

Today we had no breakfast at home.  instead we walked the twenty minutes to school to catch a forty minute bus to the home of a woman named Flor who was to teach us all to cook many Costa Rican dishes.  We started off with tortillas and worked our way through several very yummy dishes.  Although I am not a fan of plantains, everything else was delicious and we enjoyed this time of fellowship and food.

We ate all morning and late into the afternoon.  It was fantastic and Flor’s final words were that if you put a piece of yourself into the food you make it will show through in the taste; a truism in many endeavors.IMG_4100Mary at cooking class this morningIMG_4110Yuca - the secret ingredientMary learns to make tortillas - Tico styleIMG_4121IMG_4129Guyo pinto!IMG_4155IMG_4160This was delicious!Mary helps mixMary's EmpenadaIMG_4187
