Is cornflour what we in the US call cornstarch?

Beautiful food, looks and sounds delicious!

Ah yes, I see MG beat me to it.🙂

Just time zones really. I like that we 'cox and box' through 24 hours across the hemispheres on this forum. When its morning for murphyscreek its evening here and vice versa. When I posted you would have been tucked up in bed, probably.

Cornstarch or cornflour - either one is correct.
What you want to avoid like the plague is masa harina (which is nixtmalizado - treated with lye) and harina PAN - which is coarse, milled white corn used to make arepas in Venezuela.
