What a wonderful evening making homemade tamales with Gabriela and Eileen… thank you for your time and talents! You are both so inspiring. We had a fantastic time laughing and enjoying everyones company, and making some delicious tamales! This will not be a night we soon forget. Looking forward to what’s next in the Community Open Kitchen at the Heit Center. And don’t forget… you must dance in front of the pot and be happy or tamales won’t turn out :) img_4879
