For over two decades Carla Tozcano has been a staple in guest services at SAR. Meals cooked by Leslie Shipman (director of guest services) and Carla keep SAR seminar participants full and ready to tackle tough conversations. Although seminars are on hold for now at SAR, Carla’s current experiments in the kitchen will surely make an appearance once programs resume. Gelatina, a familiar Mexican dessert, takes the traditional Jell-O cake to a delightful new place and makes the perfect end to a summer meal.
Guests aren’t at the Seminar House these days so we have been busy oiling the vigas, waxing the floors, and addressing projects that we’ve been wanting to do now that time has allowed it. I’ve also been cooking a lot. I made this cake recently for my sister and she loved it. I hope to share it with our scholars when we are back on campus again! —Carla Tozcano
