“Mexican Tamales cooking class”

Tamales are made with masa – a nixtamalized corn (hominy) dough – lard or vegetable shortening and rich broth.

Tamales from Mexico City are typically wrapped in corn husks and filled with different meats and salsa, or fruits (for the sweet tamales) before being steamed. They are perfect for any kind of celebration, such as potlucks, holiday parties, or big family gatherings. GLUTEN-FREE!

Tamales class is so much fun! We will go through the whole tamal process – preparing the masa, preparing the corn husks, fixing the tamales by filling, folding and steaming.
