Event Details

 

Join the city’s best tamale makers as they work their masa magic, and then take your tamales home for your holiday parties.

Taught by the chefs of La Cocina, La Tamalada is an annual holiday celebration of food and family run by the family matriarchs.  Over the course of several days, the women make staggering amounts of tamales for families and friends, and with the help of a stovetop steamer, the supply lasts well throughout the holidays.  

From sweet-corn, banana-leaf wrapped goodness to tamales wrapper in tender corn husks and a plantain bow, acquaint yourself with the culinary diversity of Mexico, Central and South America, followed by a big feast and leftovers to cover your tamale cravings for days.  Like so many traditional foods, los tamales represent so much more than just a tasty bite - it's community and family.
