Home Tamale Parties

Here's to having fun in the kitchen!

     If you have a group of friends who love food, we have the perfect idea. Our home tamale parties offer an interactive and unique event for birthdays, reunions, and especially for celebrating the year-end holiday season! 
     We’ll organize the party, provide cooking instruction, and then clean up after. You simply enjoy your event and have fun with the group.

How it Works

     Whether you’re a novice or a truly seasoned cook, we know you’ll enjoy our approach. Measuring tools are banned and your inner chef is invited to play, with lots of tamale samples shared during the class.
     Traditional tamale side dishes like escabeche and escamocha round out the typical party menu. These dishes are integrated into the instruction and each is taste-tested by the group, so plan to come hungry!
            “Is my kitchen big enough?”
 As long as you can put a cutting board down (in the kitchen or on the dining room table) as many times as there are guests, you can comfortably host the class in your home kitchen.
Note– the maximum size group is 20, and the minimum is eight.
     Also, if you prefer, we have a classroom available for your group that accommodates up to 20 participants. 
     The cost of the two hour class is $75 per person in a home kitchen, and $85 per person in our classroom. Included are all instruction, food and printed recipes, along with an ebook version of Richard Lambert’s cookbook, Preheat to 350 Degrees. 
     Please go here to inquire about arranging a tamale party for a date you have in mind.
