A Taste of Tamales by the Bay

San Francisco's first annual tamale tasting, ~A TASTE OF TAMALES BY THE BAY~ will take place to benefit Benchmark Institute, a nonprofit organization that teaches advocates in nonprofits how to use the law to help low-income communities. Guests will sample tamales from some of the finest tamale makers in Northern California, including up-and-coming food artists supported by La Cocina Community Kitchen, Chef Mateo Granados and Maria Martinez, also known as the Tamale Queen.

A variety of tamale styles will be served, including Mexican, Yucatecan, Salvadoran, and Chilean. Guests can purchase their favorites at the event to serve at home. Ceja Vineyards will be on hand to share information on choosing wines to serve with tamales, with their wines available for purchase by the glass and bottle. Entertainment will include live music by The Whitewater Band, and demonstrations on making tamales as well as serving them.
