Home / Travel / Photo Blog / Tamal Oaxaqueño, Oaxaca Mexico

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.
