Program Description

Event Details

Join us for a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration with food and conversation! Practice your Spanish with DPL staff as we discuss tamales from México while you sample the real thing. Nadia will show you how to make her family recipe for tamales, a delicious dish made of corn based dough filled with different meats, vegetables, or cheeses depending on the region. Nadia will introduce you to tamales from Sonora.

Voy a seguir la receta familiar para hacer tamales. Cuando era joven y vivía en México, celebrábamos la navidad, el  año nuevo y una que otra fecha especial con tamales. Muy seguido le ayudaba a mi mamá (mi abuela materna) a hacerlos, por eso no parecía que era tanto trabajo pero cuando los hice yo sola me di cuenta de todo el tiempo y el esfuerzo que toma. Lo bueno es que se pueden hacer muchos a la vez y congelarlos crudos o cocidos.

El tamal está hecho de masa de maíz y relleno de algo, como carne, verduras, queso, etc. y varía dependiendo de la región. Hoy les presento los tamales sonorenses.  

Este evento es en español y inglés. This event is in Spanish and English. Food will be available while supplies last. Please register below.
