I’ve sent messages recently advertising El Centro de la Raza’s tamale-making classes (by the way, there are still a few spots open for our April 24th class [note the date change]), but I don’t know whether I alerted the local community to the fact that we are selling tamales as well!
Unfortunately, the first tamale class is this Saturday, meaning if you wanted to purchase some of the tamales that our tamalera and her students will be making, they are $12/dozen and you must order by tomorrow at 5pm. You need to pay with your order (we can accept payment over the phone with our new credit card machine).
If you have any questions or would like to order fresh, locally-made tamales, and support your local non-profit community organization at the same time, please call Ashley Haugen at 206-957-4611 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The tamales can be picked up Saturday afternoon after the class at El Centro de la Raza or any time during the following week.
Elliott Jones at El Centro de la Raza sends an update that will be good news to tamale fans:
