This book makes me want to make tamales...now! Written in a very user-friendly format, Ms. Tapp offers numerous explorations of the tamale theme, including many regional variations. I love that she includes several recipes for making masa (the corn base of a tamale), including vegan masa. There are easy-to-follow diagrams on different ways to fold the tamale wrappers. The recipes are varied and all sound so delicious; sweet, savory, meat, veggie. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to explore tamale-making at home.
