Our founder, Karla Plancarte Solorzano, grew up in Mexico surrounded by lush volcanic farmland full of expansive cornfields and the toasty smell of warm, fresh tortillas floating through the air.
After moving to the Netherlands, it’s no surprise that Karla missed eating corn tortillas every day. She longed for the beloved comfort food and the delicious corn tortillas of her hometown.
Nostalgic for the genuine flavors of Mexico, Karla searched across Europe, hungry for the high-quality masa and corn tortillas of home but nothing hit the spot.
Karla realized this was an opportunity and she began cooking up the idea to create her own authentic Mexican molino and tortillería in the Netherlands… and the concept for Tortillera Taiyari was born! The rest is history.
“Creating Tortillería Taiyari began as a personal project but quickly developed into far more than a delicious business venture.
I was far from home and this journey allowed me to reconnect with my Mexican roots from a new perspective.
Through Tortillería Taiyari, I am able to share my culture and Mexico’s gastronomic traditions with the world, while opening new opportunities in my second home here in the Netherlands.”
