Masa Appeal

Upon listening to her college roommate recount her family's process of tamale-making that has been passed down through the generations, foodie designer Carley Sheehy created a DIY recipe kit that allows even the novice to roll up their sleeves and throw their own tamalada. In Mexico and many South American countries, tamales represent a holiday tradition that combines family and food into an all-day cooking marathon that ends in unwrapping some delicious "presents." Master the time-honored techniques with Carley's step-by-step instructions: make the masa, add your favorite fillings, wrap in corn husks, and steam. Once cooked, open and drape them in a piquant, three-pepper sauce of ancho, pasilla, and New Mexico chilies, and savor a taste of a rich culinary tradition. Starter kit makes about 16 tamales. Assembled in Livermore, California.

Hot tamale

Need idea for the cook in the family. We do a lot of Mexican type meals, so this fits right in. If this is gluten free then it might be a good selling point to add. Looks like it could be, but when in doubt we assume it isn't.
