Tamales Workshop, 7/27


Join Lola’s Cocina for a Tamaleada to Remember!

In Mexico the holidays are greeted with a tradition your family and friends are sure to love. Everyone, young and old alike, gathers in the kitchen to enjoy each other's company and assemble dozens of tamales.

In this class we'll show you everything you need to make these festive treats part of your own holiday repertoire, from the masa (dough) and fillings to wrapping techniques and tasty salsa. We’ll have two fillings prepared, one braised meat and one vegetarian, and then as a class you’ll prepare your masa. Then we’ll gather together to assemble tamales, wrapping them in corn husks for steaming. While your tamales are cooking, you and your classmates will prepare salsa and agua fresca, then you’ll sit down as a group to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

By the end of the class, you will:
* Know how to prepare flavorful tamal dough
* Understand which types of fillings work well, and how you can improvise to create your own
* Learn to fill, wrap, steam, and freeze tamales for later use

Class participants will take home tamales, a recipe booklet and how-to guide on hosting a tamalada at home, and a better understanding of the cultural significance of the tamaleada!
