Tortilla 'Food of the Soul' Full-Day Zapotec Village Tour

This tour runs on Mondays and Fridays. A fascinating cuisine tour that takes you off-the-beaten path through indigenous villages in search of the roots of the tortilla! Visit a traditional Zapotec corn farmer,  a family of potters who craft clay griddles and try our hand at making tortillas. We’ll also learn about the hidden ingredient in tortillas so important that without it the great civilizations of Mexico never would have existed (no, it’s not fluoride!). The tortilla was invented in Oaxaca 2,700 years ago according to archaeologists, so what better place to learn about this true Mexican food of the soul?
