Chicana in Boston
I've logged eight years of Boston living, and often times my California childhood seems far removed. As for many others, food helps me share my culture, my travels and my fondest memories with with the people I love most.
These photos are from my family's tamale making ventures last Christmas. I'll feature how to make a few different classic varieties (the pics are of our red chile & shredded beef tamales) during the holiday season.
My hopes are this blog will serve as a budding chef's diary, and in some ways, as love letter to my partner & most loyal culinary fan. I'll be exploring New England's local, seasonal produce and celebrating some of my Mexican families favorite comfort foods. Come along!
