Day of the Dead Cooking with Estela Calzada

Day of the Dead Cooking with Estela Calzada

Thu., October 27, 6:00pm to 8:30pm

3 Washington St. , Somerville

You are here

A native of Durango, Mexico, Estela Calzada will teach attendees to create a Mexican meal speaking Spanish—as we translate into English.

Estela is the real deal: she used to cook at Somerville’s Tu y Yo restaurant and several of her recipes still grace the menu there! We will make classic Dia de los Muertos dishes: tamels with chicken and delicious sala verde. We will also make champurrado, a chocolate atole, a masa-based hot corn beverage flavored with cinnamon. After our tamalada (tamale-making party), we will sit down to feast and learn more about Mexican Dia de los Muertos traditions, like altars to honor the dead and sugar skulls.

** We are excited to offer a English-Spanish bilingual class! This class is open to all but especially recommended to those looking to practice a little español and Mexican cooking. ¡ándale!

Bring an appetite, and apron, and a container to take home a few of your husk-wrapped goodies!
