Tamale Festival

Well, I'm at home in the Midwest with the family, but not doing a whole lot of baking. Hopefully that will change soon, but in the meantime, here is a post that's been languishing in my "drafts" pile for quite a while.

Tamale Festival
Macarthur Park, Los Angeles. November 2007.

A beautiful day for a tamale festival. And yes, the name of the festival is grammatically incorrect.

Beverages- Horchata, Tamarind juice, Kool-Aid, etc.

Beautiful Macarthur makes this seal sad.

Bacon-wrapped hot dogs...mmmmm.


Don't know the name of this dish...we'll just call it "deep fried, with chicken"

And finally, the tamales! greasy.

Really awesome post. I think the fried thing is a pupusa. So delicious-looking!

Where do you find out about this type of thing in L.A.? I've been looking for stuff like this to go to for years!

I wish we had food festivals like this in our area! Even the greasy tamales look good (I'd go for the fried turnover with cheese!)

The fried food item is a "Quesadilla". That's a real homemade quesadilla made of masa(just like the tamales). You can make them at home. I do.
