When sisters Mafe and Coco moved to the U.S. from Venezuela, something was missing that they just couldn’t live without: arepas, a gluten-free cornmeal toast alternative. Thus, began their journey to offer this staple to those wishing to bring the traditional flavors of Venezuelan culture to their home. Thicker than a tortilla, arepas are made from a pre-cooked cornmeal flour called Masarepa. They’re lightly cooked in a griddle until crispy on the outside yet still soft on the inside. Arepas are then filled or topped after cooking.
