Tamal or tamalli in Nahuatl, is a beautiful bundle of corn masa filled with a diverse range of ingredients that are shaped and sized according to their Mexican state of origin. Tamales are consumed in times of celebration, and are a way to pay homage to ancestors. Today, tamaladas are a holiday tradition where families come together to create food to make memories.
In this hands-on cooking class, students will keep this laborious tradition alive by learning how to prepare masa, make a filling, and learn how to both fill and fold the tamal using corn husks as wrappers.
Participants will take home tamales to share with their family members!
Instructor: Sandi Romero, owner of Mama’s Tamales and Tacos Too.
