Ever wonder how these amazing Mexican treats are prepared? We will show you how! Tamales, a beloved comfort food served for festivals, birthdays, the holidays, 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 fun class you will learn how to prepare homemade tamales hands on! Our Chef will walk you through the steps of making masa, hot sauce, and fillings. Then we will move on to rolling and steaming our tamales. And best of all there will be plenty to eat so come hungry!
