A Delicious Treat: Mexican Sopes Workshop

TIC Mexican Sopesreview by Mala Raman and Nathalie Harms

03.11.22.  Día de los Muertos (or the Day of the death) is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the lives of those who have passed away with food, drink and celebration. It takes place on November 1st to honor the children that passed away and on November 2nd to honor the adults.

We had the opportunity to learn from our very own TIC member and Event Coordinator, Lily Gonzalez, how to make Mexican sopes with step-by-step instructions on how to cook this popular Mexican dish based on Lily’s family’s cooking tips and tricks. We made the tortillas from scratch for the sopes, salsa, pickled onions and guacamole. Lily demonstrated how to make the dish and all the trimmings. She also brought along Agua de Jamaica for tasting (hibiscus water). (more…)

Tomorrow we’ll meet up again at the Hap Stap Festival.  In honor of Throwback Thursday, here’s a look back at the TIC experience from last year!

The weather was perfect for an evening of munching and kletzen at the 22nd annual Hap Stap Festival. Sixteen local restaurants showed off their best tapas-style dishes and the tempting aromas of gourmet dining blanketed the revelers. The event was was made up of dozens of tents dotted throughout the Interpolis’ courtyard (near the Spoorlaan). TIC’s own crafty Corey secured the perfect cozy table right in the middle of the action and attendees sampled dishes such as fish and chips, steaks, burgers, friets and more.

Like every Tilburg International Club Borrel, the first drink was provided by the club and iced Schrobbeler with lime was the drink of choice for several attendees. Many club members danced to the 1960’s R&B sounds of the live band The Motown Marbles. The summer daylight extended to 10pm and the group enjoyed the lekker weer until the late evening.
