When: Saturday May 27th, 3pm

Kings Troop Rd. Stone Mountain, Ga 30083 by May 13th.

Description: Locally raised beef will be marinated, wrapped in manquey leaves,
placed in a traditional clay oven, then slow- cooked overnight. The oven has
been built just for this occasion by Juan, who will also do the cooking. The
meat will be chopped on a 100 year old block brought by Juan from Mexico.
Juan speaks very little English, but his wide grin and sparking eyes tell a
universal tale of joy, which is found wherever good food and friends are
found. The meat will be served with Loris’s homemade salsa and handmade
tortillas. The ladies will give a tortilla -making demonstration. Other
culturally appropriate foods and beverages will be served. This, along with
some musical folks from South of the Border, will make for a great afternoon
of food, fun and fellowship.
