Mom´s Pestiños

Mom´s Pestiños

Marta Díaz de Lope Díaz
Rosa tries to recall her mother by cooking the pestiños recipe she always prepared, with no success. She has invited her sisters, Beatriz and Isabel, to help her, even though they don’t speak to each other. Neither one knows that the other one is going to be there, and they can’t imagine how much Rosa wants to eat those pestiños again.
