seeking hallacas....??

lark22 | Jan 15, 2002 01:25 PM

I had these when I was in Venezuela about 10 years ago; it's a traditional Christmas dish called an hallaca. It's something like a tamale, made with masa meal and filled with meat and olives and raisins, etc, wrapped up in a banana leaf and steamed.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find these? I know they might not be around now because they're seasonal, but there's always next year.....

thanks!
