Event Description

Discover Latin American Cuisine. Tamales have gained popularity in the past few years. This traditional dish has roots in Maya culture. Made from corn flour and shaped by hand, Tamales can be adapted to delight vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian and meat eaters alike. Participants will learn the basics and techniques on how to build a Tamale from scratch with various fillings, along with special salsas and pickled veggies. You will have a chance to taste this delightful treat! Bring your aprons and your palates and join Elizabeth Cruz, former owner and chef of El Cocal restaurant for 14 years who incorporates her El Salvadoran heritage into her cooking. It will be truly a tantalizing experience.

Cost: $30
Registration: 604-718-5800
