Saturday, December 13 • 11 am to 1 pm
Co-op Classroom at 300 N. Pioneer St.
A centuries old holiday tradition for many families with Hispanic ties is the traditional family gathering to make tamales. As the saying goes, “Many hands make light work.” And, since there are numerous steps involved to create these spicy little corn masa packages wrapped in cornhusks, the saying rings true in many New Mexican kitchens.
Seasoned meats and vegetables become a savory blend of flavors once they steam cook inside the tamales. Meanwhile the cooks have a chance to share stories, gossip and laughter; a year’s worth of living that gets wrapped right up in the dough!
On Saturday, December 13th, stop by the Culinary Kiosk inside the Co-op and sample some of our favorite tamale fillings from 11 am to 1 pm. Then join us in our Co-op Classroom and Kitchen for our version of a Traditional Tamale Party. Stop by the Co-op Classroom located at 300 North Pioneer Street to watch a tamale making demonstration. Then try your hand at making your own tamale masterpiece. We’ll supply all the makings including the masa, fillings (both vegetarian and meat), and the cornhusks. Leave with recipes for three different fillings, a few tamales for dinner and a new holiday tradition to share with your own friends and family!
Don’t miss this opportunity. It’s one of the most joyful and social events we offer to mark the winter holidays. For more information call us at 541-482-2237.
