How it works

The Good Food Project's chefs will show you just how fun and easy making tamales by hand can be. Your chef will guide you through softening the corn husks, prepping your fillings, preparing your masa; and forming and filling and wrapping your tamales. As you put them on the stove to steam, you'll make a fresh salsa to enjoy with your warm tamales. At the end of class, you'll have fresh salsa and a dozen steamed to perfection tamales to enjoy!
