Make Tamales with Slow Food OC
usually laugh at the idea of people paying money to learn how to make tamales (no need for moolah, people--just hang out with Mexican women come Christmas Eve), but the event that Slow Food OC is hosting is worth it and muy cheap. From their recent newsletter:
Learn how to make your own tamales in this informal and delicious presentation. Ms. Lilly Garo will show us step-by-step how to make sweet and savory tamales, a seasonal treat from our latino heritage in Southern California. We will be sharing a meal based on our class preparations, and all participants will be able to take home tamales for their holiday celebration. Cost is $5.00 for Slow Food Members and $15.00 for Non-Members. For reservations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Stephanie at (714) 910-4295. Please RSVP by November 30. Event will be held at Spurgeon United Methodist Church, 1025 W. Memory Lane in Santa Ana.
I know the above email said to reserve by yesterday, but I'm sure they can still sneak in a soul or two. More importantly, why haven't you joined Slow Food OC, part of the Slow Food movement that seeks to relocalize cuisine and make it more delicious?
