Cooking Class - The Official Tamales Class with Chef Roxana

Create sweet and savory tamales

Just about everyone loves tamales. You can make savory or sweet ones. Have a few as a meal or one as a snack. And now you can make your own. During this class, you’ll season Masa and four different types of tamales. You’ll start with Tamales de Mole de Oaxaca, move on to Tamales picantes de carnitas, then create Costa Rican Pork Tamales before you finish off with Tamales de maíz dulce. Be sure to bring your own wine bottles. We’ll supply the glasses. Here’s to tamales and wine!

Amazingly fun class and delicious food!



04 Mar 2016

I’ve always had a love for cooking, but never really had the knack for it. I absolutely love it though, and I was determined to learn how to cook Tamales to surprise my fiancé with them for his birthday; he’s Mexican originally and I have absolutely no skill cooking Latin foods. When I found out I could take a cooking class and learn how to make, not only Tamales, but Churros too, I signed up immediately. I was horribly nervous on class day, but when I arrived Chef Roxana was so warm and welcoming I very quickly felt comfortable and ready to start cooking. She did a really great job going through all the steps and making them seem simple to complete instead of ominous, and in the end I ended up with some incredibly delicious Tamales and even Churros better than my local Mexican restaurant. I am going to be going to another one of Chef Roxana’s classes very soon.
