When: Sat., Dec. 10, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. 2016
The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents La Gran Tamalada, an annual community workshop that honors the tradition of making tamales. The free event blends storytelling, the history of the tamalada, cultural pride and lifelong learning. Children and adults participate in this hands-on opportunity to learn about the ingredients, recipes and cooking methods used in making this culturally iconic dish. Participants take home both knowledge of and appreciation for the techniques that have been passed from generation to generation for many years. For the second year, the Cortez Family, owners of the popular Mi Tierra restaurant, will share their love of family, tradition, and tamales with the community.
