What You Will Learn

Are you intrigued by tamales? Ever wondered what was in them or how to make them? Then this class is for you! 

Our chef instructor will share some insider knowledge about this ancient delicacy, believed to have orginated in Mesoamerica – the land between North and South America. Perhaps best known for its Mexican version, the tamale is made of masa, which is a type of corn dough, and filled with different ingredients, such as seasoned meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, and/or chilies. Then, it is steamed in either a corn husk or banana leaf. The fun part? You can use the husk or leaf as a disposable plate! 

In this class, you will sample a few tamales. You also will make and be able to take home your own amazing creations to share with family and friends. We're sure your efforts will result in praises of muy delicioso!
