Tamales Cooking Class with Doña Lidia / TBD
This is a cooking class organized by request! Doña Lidia is a master weaver from San Antonio Aguas Calientes, and a great cook, too. In this session, we will be going over a few different simple versions of tamales with corn base, offering both meat and vegetarian options straight from Doña Lidia's home.
There are literally dozens of ways of preparing tamales. But don't worry, we'll start from the beginning!
This class is held on Saturday, May 29, from 12noon -1pm Guatemala time
We will be sending out an ingredient list a week before the class. We will be covering the steps from start to finish, and we hope you will be able to follow along with us. It's possible that you may need a bit more time to finish the dish, but we will cover all the steps and send you the recording after, too.
After the class, we will be sharing some handwoven Tapacanastos being sold by Doña Lidia. These are beautifully-decorated textile pieces used traditionally to cover tortillas in order to keep them clean and hot.
Maximum number of participants: 12
