Tastes of Mexico: The Famous Green Tamales
Date: Wednesday 8th, Dec.
Cost: 350RMB, 300RMB for Members
Of the more than 500 tamale recipes that exist in Mexico, we have chosen the green tamale with pork, there is a small sample of the miscegenation between pre-Hispanic cuisine and Spanish colonial cuisine mainly, known today around the world as Mexican cuisine. The tamale that began as a ritual dish in ancient times, today is still a dish to celebrate important dates or family events.
We could define this sample of Mexican culinary history as a corn cake filled with meats or vegetables and sauces if it is salty tamale or with fruits and nuts if it is sweet tamale, wrapped in banana leaf or corn and steamed.
But it is not possible to present a tamale without atole, his faithful companion. Atole is the drink that for years has complemented them with different flavours (fruits, nuts, chocolate and others) but the same thick consistency. Together they are one of the strongest traditions present at any table in Mexico.
