Terrific Tamales

Pumpkin Tamale with Shredded Chipolte Orange Pork Filling

On November 3rd, as a tribute to the Mexican Day of the Dead, Les Dames D’Escoffier of Chicago were treated to a demonstration and history of tamales by Dames Judith Hines and Shannon Kinsella at Nielsen-Massey Vanillas headquarters hosted by Dame Camilla Nielsen.

Dames made tamales in many flavors, both traditional and “Nuevo”.  This celebration of life and loved ones, very different from our American version of Halloween, brings families together to remember the past.  At Nielsen-Massey the celebration brought the Dames together in a communal kitchen effort – and while the tamales steamed they took a tour of the Nielsen-Massey facilities.
