The group class takes place on a Friday evening from 6:30–8:30 p.m.
Lucy and her family have been making tamales for over 20 years. During this intermediate-level class, students learn the family secrets—including how to prepare cornmeal mix, roll the tamale, and cook everything to perfection. The class includes appetizers, drinks, and dinner. Each person also gets an apron and a certificate of completion to take home.
Lucy’s Tamale Factory
The windows of the tiny, tucked-away Lucy’s Tamale Factory remain perpetually fogged. Inside, Lucy and her staff of cooks dart from stovetop to stovetop, steaming massive pots of traditional Mexican tamales—fluffy, authentic cornmeal street fare filled with chicken, pork, or jalapeño. The cooks mix masa and shred meats to craft the treats, winners of numerous awards across the U.S., which emulate the tamales Lucy’s family has made for generations in Durango, Mexico. Their hard work has paid off; their classic handheld delights with no preservatives have earned accolades from festivals and fares across the US. Patrons bustle in and out of their shop to order the tamales individually or by the dozen for special events such as large parties or events where people are required to construct their own hats out of cornhusks.
