- Amy Valdes Schwemm, of Mano Y Metate
At this tamalada (tamale making party) you will assemble, cook and enjoy red chili tamales, learning traditions from Amy Valdes Schwemm of Mano Y Metate. Valdes Schwemm started helping her family make tamales as a toddler. In class, she will show you how to treat corn with lime (not the citrus kind), rinse, grind by hand and whip the masa. You will make chili sauce from whole dried chilies to season the meat filling. Please note, no vegetarian option will be offered.
