Shaw Lash. Emily Peterson is back for another insightful, personal and useful episode of Sharp & Hot! She starts the show with some strong thoughts on government regulation before diving into a segment on masa and tortilla making with Shaw Lash, a Mexican food instructor at The Brooklyn Kitchen and former chef at Rick Bayless’s Frontera Grill in Chicago, Illinois. This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.



“Blue corn itself is a great candidate for masa. You’ll see blue corn tortilla chips in the grocery store because it makes really great masa.” [20:00]


“If you actually make a tortilla with fresh corn masa and hand press it, you never have to double wrap it because it will stand up.” [30:00]
