Class Description

A tamal is a traditional Mexican dish made of corn masa or dough, which is filled with flavorful meats in sauce, fruits, cheese and chiles and steamed in a corn husk or banana leaf. Lourdes will be showing us how to make chicken tamales in green sauce. A vegetarian option will also be provided.


Chef Biography


Lourdes Gutiérrez Nájera is a cultural anthropologist who teaches at Drake University. She also serves as a member of Monsoon's Board. Originally from Mexico's northern borderlands, she grew up hearing stories of buried treasures and souls wandering the earth which fueled her imagination. She remembers fondly, watching women cook together, laughing and sharing these stories and occasional jokes, while the men harvested crops in the fields.
