An entire cookbook about the tamale. Features include a history of the tamale and instructions for stuffing, wrapping, and cooking. But the main attraction is the variety of tamale recipes – along with a dozen just for the dough. The book includes fillings that range from savory vegetarian to meat and seafood, to sweet and fruit-filled desserts. Sample recipes: Carmelized Onion Tamales with Tomato-Basil Salad, and Sweet Pumpkin Tamales with Nutmeg Crème Anglaise.
