This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

Make this the year you deepen your love and understanding of masa. Masa corn flour is a pivotal ingredient in Mexican culture and cuisine. We will use it two ways: for tortillas and for a savory tamale pie. We eat with our eyes and you will love the beauty of tie-dyed tortillas. Then, you will learn how to make chicken tinga that we will bake inside a tamale pie crust (the tinga also is amazing in sopes, tacos, and so much more) for a hearty main dish.

Bring your questions and get ready to play with masa dough!

Annelies Zijderveld believes cooking should be fun and flavorful, (and still can’t quite get over the amazing abundance of fresh produce and ingredients available to us in the Bay area). With a master’s in intercultural studies and a Mexican-Bolivian-Dutch heritage, she’s keen on finding the points of intersection around the table. Her food writing has recently appeared in Edible East Bay, The Kitchn, and San Francisco Classical Voice. Her online cooking journal, EatMoreMeatless.net explores creative and doable ways for all trying to eat more vegetables. Find her online at Instagram @anneliesz.
