Tortilla Presser

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My mother and father had come to the United states to look for a better opportunity for the family. they've left many things behind in Mexico and when they came to the U.S everything was very different. One thing they've never forgot and had change was the authentic Mexican food. Yes, we do eat a lot of American food such as pizza, pasta, burgers etc. but nothing is more enjoyable than Mexican food. At first it wasn't easy to create home made food as most of the produces are pre-made and aren't that good. Until my Aunt had come from Mexico from a vacation. She brought us a new tortilla Presser as she knew that we need on. Ever since we've been able to create fresh tortillas at home giving us the chance to create memela, tostadas, tacos and much more. we've been able to enjoy these food like it just came from Mexico.
