Service Description

Tamales come in a wide array of sizes, shapes, and fillings. The most widely produced tamales are savory and typically have a meat filling. But not all tamales are made for carnivores. Chef Jorge Alberto Coronado will be teaching students how to make two kinds of vegetarian tamales. The first recipe will be a Hibiscus Chipotle Cream Cheese Dessert Tamale wrapped in banana leaves. This recipe is a fusion of Central Mexican and Texas flavors created by chef Jorge. The hibiscus flower is widely used in Mexican cuisine within teas and marmalades for its fragrant aroma. The hibiscus flower will be combined with caramelized sugar, cream cheese, and the smokey spice of the chipotle to make a deliciously unique tamale. The second recipe will be a Mexican classic, the Queso con Rajas tamale. This is a savory tamale with seared poblano peppers and Oaxaca cheese. The queso con rajas tamale was the first experience chef Jorge had with a meat-less tamale over 2 decades ago. That banana leaf wrapped treat spurred the experimentation and creation of several vegan & vegetarian recipes within chef Jorge’s cookbook. Students will also hear a brief history of masa and its various uses. From the cultivation of corn to the milling techniques used to produce masa. There will also be a hands on demonstration of cutting and preparing banana leaves for use in tamales during the class.
