The Famous Tamales Making

Date: Saturday, 25th June

Time: 14:30 – 17:00

Cost: 350RMB, 300RMB for Members

Of the more than 500 tamal recipes that are found in Mexico, we have chosen the most popular and highly preferred: the Green Tamal with Pork. This is a small sample of the mix between Pre-Hispanic cuisine and Spanish Colonial cuisine mainly, known today around the world as Mexican cuisine. The tamal which began as a ritual dish in ancient Aztec times, today is still a dish to celebrate holidays 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 tamal or with fruits and nuts if it is sweet tamal, wrapped in banana leaf or corn and steamed.

But it is not possible to present a tamal without atole, its faithful companion. Atole is the drink that for years has complemented the tamal with different flavours (fruits, nuts, chocolate and others) but the same thick consistency. Together they exemplify one of the most typical Mexican culinary traditions.
