Takes the mystery out of making tamales June 4 2009
By C. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm an avid cook who loves mexican dishes. However, tamales was something that I always thought was beyond my abilities. Made my first batch last weekend using a recipe in this book to rave reviews. Started with simple filling -- roasted corn, roasted chilis and some cheese. Everything came together just fine. Directions for assembling and cooking were easy to follow.

Lots of examples, lots of explanation. What better way to learn something new?

Hasta Tamales! Dec 27 2009
By John Strohl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If there's a better book for the veteran tamale afficienado than this one I don't know what it is. This book covers everything you need to know, and beyond that, a lot that you wanted to know but you didn't know it. A comprehensive guide to the world of tamales, this book provides a complete overview of the methods of preparation, and presents the subject in a way that is refreshing and that takes the dread out of making tamales. Further, it presents the appropriate notion that there is not only "one true way" to make tamales but an infinite variety confined only by your imagination. In more than 50 recipes you'll find a variety of masas, sauces, and salsa that present a host of exciting flavor combinations with this staple of the Latin American diet. I cannot say enough good about this book or it's author Daniel Hoyer. Tamales

Tamales are easier than you think March 23 2011
By B00k W0rm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Growing up in Southern California, I live on Mexican food. I eat Mexican food everywhere from fancy restaurants to run-down food carts. And because Mexican cuisine is so ingrained in the culture, I also grew up cooking lots of different Mexican foods. BUT - I always heard that tamales were too difficult to even think about cooking for myself. My mom would talk of family coming over and creating an assembly line system in order to make, fill and roll the tamales. All that work intimidated me until I found this book. Mr. Hoyer's book is presented in a way that makes tamale-making seem doable.

The pictures are great because you see how to complete some of the steps and what the finished product should look like. The instructions were clear. And most importantly, my very first batch of shredded beef tamales with red sauce were such a hit that I'm making chicken tamales this week! I modified the recipe for the meat to my taste and I will use chicken broth for the masa next time, but if you have a good sense of what tamales should taste like this is a great guide.
