Ever wonder how these amazing Mexican treats are prepared? We will show you how! Tamales, a beloved comfort food served for festivals, birthdays and everyday meals, are a staple in Mexico. They date back thousands of years, even before the Mayans and Aztecs. The portable, filled buns have fed generations of families (and armies) from Mexico to Argentina. Corn meal wrapped in corn husks, plantain, or banana leaves can be filled with almost anything, most commonly with shredded pork, beef or chicken, while sweet tamales feature fruit or raisins and coconut.
In this class you will learn how to prepare homemade tamales hands on! and there will be plenty to take home and share with family and friends!
