About the event

Today is such a fun class! Get ready to learn how to make a Tamale from scratch and learn a variety of fillings and sauces. You will be whipping up tamales for your loved ones every year. This class is a wonderful way to bring the family together and continue the tradition throughout the years.

Due to the timing and the length it takes to make tamales, some of the ingredients needed will be prepped prior to your arrival and demonstrated for you in the beginning of class. Please know this will not affect how much you will learn. The class is designed this way in order to simplify and save what would be empty time during your class. This way, you will be able to learn a significant amount more without being forced to spend 12 hours at my kitchen enjoying my company :) (Insert humor here)
