We are bringing the Latino tradition of family tamale making to Kearney Culinary Academy! Although tamales can be made year-round, they became a dish saved for special occasions such as Christmas or large family gatherings when a ‘tamalada’ is held. That’s because of all the time and work it takes to make them. In a tamalada, each family member takes on a different task to prepare the tamales and the older generations share their skills and tradition with the younger generation. Join our family party to make tamales over your Thanksgiving break! Take home 3 dozen tamales (you’ll need to steam them when you get home, but we’ll tell you how to do it!) per person.
We’ll have these fillings ready for you:
- Oaxaca Cheese with Poblano
- Shredded Pork with Tomato
* For vegetarians, we can make masa without pork lard
Ticket price is per person. Registration for this class will close 48 hours prior to this event.
Kearney Culinary Academy adheres to a strict minimum class capacity rule. Classes with less than 8 participants will be cancelled or rescheduled for a later date. Participants will be notified at least 48 hours in advance and offered a refund or credit for an alternative class.
