Our Interwoven Lives with the Zapotec Weavers with Cergueza Recipe

This recipe is from Carina Santiago of Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico.

“The name of this dish is Cegueza. In Zapotec it is ZAAGUEZZ. We have been eating Cergueza here in Teotitlan for many years. I remember my great grandmother preparing it and I remember my mother grinding the corn on a metate (stone mortar). It is a special dish for when the whole family is gathered on Sundays or when there is a birthday. It used to be prepared for very special fiestas. It’s one of my favorite meals with tortillas fresh from the comal (wok-like cooking pan, used over an open fire). That’s how we Zapotecs like it.”
