For our Season 4 launch of Cooking in Mexican from A to Z, Zarela & Aarón sit down together to discuss the most-requested topic from their listeners: Tamales. Together they detail every part of the tamale-making process, including tips like: what lard does for tamales, why you shouldn't overfill your tamales, and how you could repurpose your smoker or pizza oven to mimic the traditional sacahuil technique. Plus, they discuss different regional styles of tamales and the role they play in wakes, weddings, and Christmas celebrations.
