  • Salinas, CA (1888PressRelease) November 25, 2012 - For many families, Christmas is tamalada time, the time to crowd into a fragrant kitchen to make tamales. Wrapped in corn husks or banana leaves and filled with anything from pork to pineapple to squash blossoms, the steamy corn dumplings are most delicious.

    The Solano Family, owners of the Haute Enchilada Cafe and Gallery in Moss Landing, are bringing the holiday tradition of tamale making to your family. The Haute Enchilada Cafe and Gallery team scoops, smears, wraps and ties each tamale with love for your family. The kitchen team believes that the Haute Enchilada Cafe Tamale is swaddled with such care that they often refer to it as the "the baby" in true Yucatan tradition.

    From November 15th - December 31st stop by and order a TAMAL TASTER for $18- (One Tamalito of each flavor) Huitlacoche & Goat Cheese, Local Artichoke & Cheese, All Natural Pork Chile Verde, or All Natural Chicken Mole.

    Did you know? The tradition of tamales is a direct connection to the most ancient traditions of Mexico and Central America. Some scholars of Mesoamerican civilization believe that leaf-wrapped tamales actually predate the tortilla. Long before the arrival of the Spaniards, Mesoamericans believed that the gods originally crafted humans out of corn. Quite literally, corn was their substance of life. Sometime after corn had been domesticated, the ancient Mexicans invented the process of nixtamalization, that is, soaking hard corn with ashes and water to remove the fibrous shell on the kernels and to render it digestible and nutritive to human beings. The treated corn kernels could then be ground and used in tamales or tortillas.
