Plant-based Tamale Workshop w/CHEF CHRISSY BEAR

  • TONALLI STUDIO 4539 East Cesar E Chavez Avenue East Los Angeles, CA, 90022 United States (map)

Come join us in a celebration of Ancient Native flavors. Maiz is a nourishing food that has been made into many dishes and tamales are an ingenious way to pack a complete meal into a corn husk. All over the continent there exists different versions of what Mexicans call tamales and today with food industrialization we've remained adaptable and can still create nutritious tamales with whole healthy fats. My masa is prepared with Organic masa provided by Kernel of Truth Organics an East LA based tortilleria and good fats with with complete omegas like coconut oil or avocado oil. These oils are great for metabolism, brain food and they protect the nervous system.

All ingredients are provided and you end up taking home some tamales. Plus this year we will have a variety of pulque (fermented maguey sap) flavors to taste and purchase brought to you by Jaguar. A wonderful night to evoke your ancient palate for the natural ingredients of the earth.
