What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

Some things are just better when made with others. Homemade tamales are 100% better than frozen and why just make a couple when you can make dozens! What better way to spend a frigid Sunday in February than to join a group in a fragrant kitchen to scoop, smear, tie and wrap. Savory and sweet tamales along with accompanying sauces and salsas fill this afternoon’s culinary lineup.

On the menu: 

  • Chipotle Pork Tamales with Cilantro-Lime Crema
  • Charred Corn Tamales
  • Chicken Tamales with Warm Tomatillo/Cilantro Salsa
  • Fresh Avocado Salsa
  • and Dulce de Leche/Pecan Tamales
