I am so excited to be hosting our first multicultural cooking workshop with Veronica Zavaleta (information about Veronica is included at the end of this post)! She will be teaching how to make both savory and sweet tamales; along with Jamaica, a hibiscus-based tea. You will also take home six tamales!
These workshops for women are not only about learning how to cook. They are also about connecting with women from other countries/cultures, and learning more about them and their day to day lives and issues...over delicious, nourishing food. We would love to have you.
Sweet & Savory Tamale Workshop
Saturday, December 8 (4-7pm)
Please let me know your choice when you pay, so we can plan ingredients accordingly.
We will learn to cook tamales together - and eat them together in my home - while having conversations around what it looks like to be an immigrant.
We will also make Agua de Jamaica, a hibiscus-based tea with lemon. It is so delicious.
Participants will take home six tamales.
This workshop will last 3-3.5 hours.
Since this is the first workshop I'm hosting, the cost is less than most future workshops. Because of this, I will definitely ask for feedback to inform future workshops.
And, so attendees know, photos of the event will be taken for the web. Please let me know in advance if you do not want to be in public photos.
I would love to offer the option of sliding scale workshops in the near future, though this is not an option for this first workshop. If you would like to be a part of making sliding scale workshops available, you are welcome to either add to your payment for this workshop, or check out my site later: https://www.embodyyourmuse.com/giving-to-long-tables/ Absolutely no pressure; just an option.
If you have any questions, please connect with me soon.
Location is provided after payment has been received!
