Tamale Party with Zea May’s Kitchen!


With Zea May’s Kitchen!

Tamales are one of the oldest “Native American” foods, enjoyed among the Aztec in Central America some 7,000 years ago. Tamales are a portable meal:  corn meal dough surrounding any of a variety of fillings, all wrapped up in a corn husk. Originally developed as a source of energy for warriors, tamales were a daily dish throughout pre-Columbian Central America. But because they are so labor-intensive, they tend to be reserved for festivities nowadays. Join us at Awbury Arboretum when we whip up a batch of tamales for Cinco de Mayo! We will make enough for you to try and to take home. Vegetarian options will be available. We will also provide a light meal of Zea May’s Native American-inspired fare.
