It wouldn’t be the holidays without tamales at Agave Cocina & Tequilas.
From December 1 through 24, tamales will be featured on the menu at Agave Cocina & Tequilas. Large takeout orders are also available for holiday gatherings. The 2017 varieties include Roasted Poblano and Cheese, Shredded Chicken and Vegetables, Pork Ribs, and Pineapple and Coconut.
If you love Mexican cuisine, you’ll know that tamales are a tradition that’s bar none. Agave Cocina & Tequilas, co-owner Faviola Ramos learned the art of tamale-making from her mother, Maria Ramos. Faviola, who co-owns Agave with her brother Federico, loves sharing this tradition with the community. “Agave’s holiday tamales are made from a cherished family recipe that my mother and I cooked together for gatherings and Christmas Eve,” she said. “The sharing of traditions makes the holiday season so special, and trying new foods is a wonderful way to experience those traditions first-hand.”
The finest tamales take hours to prepare and are made from fresh masa and corn husks. Chefs dedicate at least three hours to the process, but many cooks report that it can take all day. Preparing the masa is the most time-consuming step of the recipe. In fact, the daylong process has become a social event called a tamalada.
The return of traditional foods such as tamales is a hallmark of the holidays. Whether you’re dreaming of honey-baked ham, cedar plank salmon or Agave’s tamales, we hope you’re enjoying this peak foodie season.
