Flour Tortilla Road Trip

Listen: Flour Tortilla Road Trip

Welcome to Splendid Table Selects, our mini podcast where we share the interviews that inspired us, taught us something new, or just helped make us better cooks. A few shows back we visited the taco historian Gustavo Arellano, author of Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America. And if you didn’t catch it, he came on basically to defend the honor of the flour tortilla. He also clarified that yes, flour tortillas are Mexican in origin. That conversation made us so hungry for authentic flour tortillas that we invited Gustavo back for a follow-up conversation. Think of it as a flour tortilla road trip. Visit our new Selects interview page to see a list of Gustavo’s flour tortilla picks and check our past conversations we’ve had with him. Now that you've got all things tortilla on your mind, check out our Corn Tortilla Recipe & Tutorial from Alex Stupak and Jordana Rothman.

Thanks to our presenting sponsor Bob’s Red Mill featuring Organic Masa Harina Corn Flour.
