These were, without a doubt, the best tamales I have ever eaten. Forget all about the rubbery or gritty tamales you may have eaten in the past. Arturo’s recipe makes fluffy, flavorful, melt-in-your mouth tamales that will ruin you for anything else. On top of that, he was friendly, approachable, and eager to make sure we saw and understood all of his demos and instruction. We are saving these recipes and would happily take another class from him again soon!

I'm glad I finally got to try making tamales from scratch. We didn't end up using all of the ingredients on the shopping list so I have a lot leftover - I will have to make tamales again soon!

Amazing! Arturo is so knowledgeable and really brought his knowledge and passion to the class. Many of us chose to personalize our fillings, and he was able to cater to everyone's different needs, including some tips for using parchment paper when we can't find corn husks. I would love to take this class again, and highly highly recommend it to others!

Arturo had us making amazing salsa in moments and by the end of the night rolling tamales almost like pros! Great session learning all about the traditional ways of tamales from scratch. While some of us made messier tamales than others....we all agreed that the final product tasted amazing! Such a great night and I highly recommend.
