Yoli Tortilleria Founder Marissa Gencarelli Talks Tortillas


Marissa Gencarelli is the co-founder of Yoli Tortilleria, the Kansas City-based bakery and product line. In this episode, Marissa and host Jessie Sheehan walk through the process of making corn and flour tortillas from scratch. You’ll learn about different corn varieties, the ancient process of “nixtamalization,” and how to look out for the pancita, or “little belly,” of the corn tortillas as they cook and puff on the hot comal. Marissa also gives a mini history lesson on agriculture and tortilla-making in Mexico that you won’t want to miss.
