MARCH BREAK: Mexican Tamales 4 Kids by Erika Araujo

March 17, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

- $40

March Break Cooking Class for Kids

Tamales are an essential and ancient Mexican dish – soft cornmeal dough (masa) stuffed with a flavourful filling, wrapped in corn husks or banana leaves and steamed. Portable and self-contained, tamales are a popular street food with countless variations found all across Mexico.

In this fun March Break class for kids 7-17, Chef Erika Araujo will share recipes and demonstrate how to make 3 kinds of tamales popular around Mexico City: chicken tamales with green salsa, a vegetarian tamale with cheese and red salsa, and a sweet dessert tamale with pineapple.

Erika will also show you how to make champurrado, a kind of creamy Mexican hot chocolate drink made with toasted corn flour, raw piloncillo sugar, Mexican chocolate and spices that is a popular accompaniment for tamales, especially around the Christmas season.

There will be lots to taste, learn and do in this fun, hands-on workshop. Everyone will get to try samples in class, make their own tamales and champurrado, and take home recipes and extra tamales to share with their families.
