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.
