Tamale Museum

Hosted by

Chef John Rivera Sedlar is in studio to tell us about the new culinary institution called Museum Tamal, opening Fall 2008 in Los Angeles.

Chef Sedlar says that we are invited to support the Museum Tamal by becoming an Amigo De La Cocina. We can attend an exclusive Wine and Light Supper Reception on Wednesday, October 18, 2006 at 6:30 p.m. $75.00 per guest includes a short presentation, beverage, light supper, service and tax. Chef/Owners Mario Batali and Nancy Silverton and partner Joseph Bastianich will generously host this benefit at their new restaurant Pizzeria Mozza before it opens to the public late October. Pizzeria Mozza, 641 N. Highland Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90036.

If you love tamales, you’ll be in heaven at this year at the 2nd Annual Los Angeles International Tamale Festival on Nov. 10, 11 & 12, 2006. The Los Angeles Tamale Festival is one of only three festivals on the westcoast celebrating the art of Tamale making. Tamales represent a very festive, culinary art that is identifiably Hispanic. With tamale cook-offs, classes and eating contests, the Tamale Festival promotes the continuation of the tamale legacy.
