Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Tamales—little packages of corn mass dough typically containing a tasty filling and wrapped in a dried corn husk—are an increasingly popular feature of Southwestern and Mexican cooking. They are inexpensive, easy to prepare, and highly versatile—they can be made with all types of fillings and in limitless styles. In Tamales, three pioneers of America's modern Southwestern cuisine present their imaginative and delicious takes on this exciting wrapped food.
The three chefs introduce readers to the many kinds of masa, or dough, with which tamales can be filled. The rich and vibrant flavors range from chipole chiles to red Thai curry. The authors also guide the reader in the basics of tamale making—stuffing, wrapping, and cooking—clarifying the steps and demystifying tamale preparation.
The tamales themselves contain worlds of flavorful diversity. There are vegetarian tamales such as Ratatouille Tamales with Rosemary-Queso Fresco Pesto; Roasted Potato, Garlic, and Sun-Dried Tomato Tamales; and Asparagus and Hollandaise Tamales. The seafood tamales include the flavors of Caribbean jerk shrimp, Lobster Newburg, and smoked salmon with horseradish crema. Poultry is a natural tamale filling. Try Arroz con Pollo Tamales, Squab-Chestnut Tamales with Red Cabbage Chow Chow, or Chicken Tamales with Mole Poblano.
Meat-filled tamales range from Coriander-Cured Beef Tamales with Barbecue-Onion Marmalade to Lamb Tamales with Mint, Black Beans, and Blackened Tomato and Mint Salsa. Tamales even make wonderful, innovative desserts; the inspired recipes in this book include Ginger-Sticky Rice Tamales with Mango and Basil, Mom's Apple Pie Tamales, and Chocolate Bread Pudding Tamales.
Tamales are quickly becoming one of America's favorite wrapped foods. It's no wonder: they welcome any flavoring and suit every occasion. After tasting these outstanding recipes, you'll realize it's true that good things come in small packages. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars CUT A TAMALE MANY, MANY WAYS March 10 2004
Format:Hardcover
TAMALES
By Mark Miller, Stephan Pyles, and John Sedlar with John Harrison
Photographer: Lois Ellen Frank
If you are not Latino or never lived in the southwest, chances are your first tamale was a strange little package, wrapped and tied as a bundle inside an early TV dinner. Further, it was probably pale red, mushy and you liked the nearby enchilada better.
Tamales become gourmet, fusion cuisine in this book, and your ideas for more can be endless. Basically think of a tamale as a house in structure. It has its foundation, living rooms and finally the roof. With tamales the foundation is a corn husk wrapper lined with masa dough, the living area is the filling and the roof a tantalizing sauce. Tamales can be vegetarian, seafood, poultry, any meat or desserts, depending on ingredients. Tamales, the lined corn husk wrapped around and filling and cooked over steam.
The masa base for the dough is large-kernel corn which looks like hominy. It is dried, cooked in limewater, drained, dried again and ground into flour. You can also purchase it, then proceed with one of the book's intriguing flavored masa dough recipes. Some variations include:
Roasted Corn Tamale Masa Dough
Wild Mushroom-Chipotle Tamale Massa Dough
Red Thai Curry Tamale Massa Dough
Habanero-Blackened Tomato Tamale Massa Dough
plus many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect tamales Dec 2 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I searched for recipes to perfect my tamales and came up with little success until i stumbled upon this book. Getting masa to have both a good flavor and texture can be tricky, but i've been successful on both levels with the various masa dough recipes. This book goes beyond the traditional tamale by creating some of the most innovative and flavorful recipes - - sauces included! Mark Miller has succeeded in yet another fabulous cookbook!

2.0 out of 5 stars Odd book June 11 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
So where is written that lard is worse for you than oil? Do some research and you'll find it's high in oleic acid. Fat is fat and too much is bad. So that's how the book starts out. Thge authors are so busy being innovative (and often pushing reality beyond its limits) that they forget you how to make a delicious regular old tamal!
