We will make traditional corn husk tamales with pork and vegetarian options. As well as sweet tamales, a Norteña Christmas traditions that reaches into Texas and Californa and Colombian style banana leaf tamales with chicken, egg and olives!!

For drinking we will make a Purple corn, pineapple Chicha for cool drinks and Cafe de Olla and Colombian hot chocolate, classic holiday beverages, to keep us caffeinated to make all these Tamales! You will be taking home lots of tamales to share with family and friends or freeze to enjoy later. We will be using clay pots to make our delicious fillings and masa. Even steaming too!
