I’ve said before, I’ll say it again – Oaxacan food is some of the best in the world.
And this, my friends, is a Oaxacan tamale. Not the cylindrical corn husked steaming parcel of deliciousness you may be used to. But instead it’s flatter, with more corners and wrapped in a banana leaf. No less delicious though!
Feeling tempted to try making them at home while I’m here in NZ and far, far away from my beloved Oaxaca. So stay tuned for my adventures in trying to make a mole, and find banana leaves here in New Zealand!
This is a budding post, It's a work in progress
Notice anything missing? This is a budding post, which means although it's mostly complete, I'm still dropping in and working on it. I believe in learning in public, and releasing my thoughts, notes & ideas before they are finished is a part of the process. You can read more about seedling, budding, and evergreen posts here, or give me a nudge if there's anything you'd like me to add.
