Learn how to make your own tamales from scratch with Plant Chicago Farmers Market vendor Temo’s Tamales!
Join Temo and his family for this once in a lifetime workshop. All ingredients will be provided, prepared, and cooked during this hands-on class. They’ll go over every step and ingredient, giving you all the information you need to make tamales at home. They plan on demoing the following flavors – pork, chicken, and rajas con queso (peppers and cheese). Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary restrictions.
About Temo’s Tamales:
Cuauhtemoc Rivera (Temo) has been selling tamales with his family at our market since 2015. During the week, Temo is a truck driver. On the weekends, he works with his Mother in law, Erolinda to make and sell delicious tamales! Erolinda works full time as a custodian for Chicago Public Schools, and she’s always making something special in the kitchen. According to Temo, “She’s a great cook, you know how some people just have ‘it’. Even a plate of beans tastes like a gourmet meal at her house.” Temo’s dream is to start up a food truck selling their tamales.
This is their first-ever workshop, and it is not to be missed!
