Taught by our fab Mexican food expert Carmen Castillo, the class was a step-by-step hands on process, with more than a dozen seniors, most of whom are Serafina pantry clients, happily slathering masa on corn husks. The final result was enjoyed by all participants. Y’all outdid yourselves, especially Dona Carmen. Yum!
