Class Description: 

There is no denying the culinary cult that surrounds authentic Mexican tamales. Tonight, our own tamale expert, Susy Lara, is going to show us exactly how it's done. She'll share coveted family recipes, secrets and techniques and she’ll have you making them like a pro in no time!  

We'll start the evening with Margaritas, of course, then she’ll will lay some ethnic cooking education on you.  Did you know that tamales are incredibly versatile. There are savory versions of course but also breakfast tamales and dessert tamales too! Tonight, we'll concentrate on the classic and authentic Chicken Tamales with Tomatillo Sauce. You’ll also learn to make the rest of the menu too:  Perfect Mexican Rice, Pico de Gallo, Homemade Tortilla Chips and a very special Mexican dessert.

Come be part of the fun in this full hands-on cooking class/party! And, here’s a bonus, you’ll even take home a half-dozen tamales to share (or not)!
