"The Tamales lady" rocked the kitchen at Independence Live
About 50 people gathered together at Independence Live to witness -and taste, of course!- the art of making the most delicious Mexican tamales in Philly, featured by Hispanic chef Jen Zavala.
Last Tuesday, July 11, Hispanic chef Jen Zavala demonstrated that Mexican food is more than tacos and enchiladas. With a masterful sample of how to make tamales - one of the ancient foods on the other side of the border - Zavala conquered the heart of the audience.
Here is a photographic memoir of the event Meet the Chefs Transforming Philadelphia’s Cuisine, co-sponsored by the Independence Blue Cross, which once again highlighted healthy and nutritious recipes from Latino chefs in Philadelphia.
