Cheers

Outstanding tour. Mark was so friendly and informative. We enjoyed every winery we visited, and the lunch provided by The Girl and The Fig was beyond delicious. This was our first trip to Sonoma, and this tour ensured that it won't be our last.

Mamaz Social Food Arepa Class and Dinner

Mamaz Social Food Arepa Class and Dinner

As soon as my now fiance made me an authentic arepa dinner after we had first started dating, I was sold. I knew that these arepas weren’t just good, they were UNBELIEVABLE. And lucky for us, other people thought so too. We have been cooking for friends and family forever, but decided to take it to the next level. We have now become the traveling arepa makers, throwing pop-up arepa parties around the bay area. We also love to teach others how to make these delicious and authentic arepas. The name Bululú is a Venezuelan term, meaning a group of excited people hanging out. We loved the energy of the word, and the fact that it translates to what we all about, bringing people together, to eat delicious food.
