A December Tamale Class held in honor of Terra Madre Day, the anniversary of Slow Food was terrific! Terra Madre Day is a celebration of eating locally and celebrating diversity of food traditions. We received many generous donations that unexpectedly allowed this class to serve as a fundraiser for our micro grant program. Laguna Culinary Arts donated a day in their kitchen, the Stadium Brewery restaurant donated ingredients and Chef Octavio Montoya donated his time in teaching. This was an all-day class. Octavio generously made us a lunch teaching us also how to make gorditas and churros. We made the BEST TAMALES EVER, and everyone took home a dozen to share with friends and family! Thanks to all for their generosity!
