Today Bernie asked me to make tacos.
It was the first time since before we started all this deconstruction and reconstruction that I was called upon to make tortillas. Back when we had the tall tiled bar attached to the kitchen island, I would put the griddle on top of the bar, and my rolling "board" (a large tempered glass cutting surface) on the counter beside the sink.
But now, the bar being GONE, how would I arrange the work space?
Like a dream, the griddle sits on the island, and because of the extra half foot of surface, there was plenty of room to roll out tortillas -- right on the perfectly polished granite surface.
Want to give them a try yourself? Here's my cousin Ramona's -- and my -- tortilla recipe.
