If you're quick about it, you may be in time to sign up for a mexican cooking lesson with Erwin Ramos, head chef and owner of Ole in Inman Square. The next session is Tuesday, May 20 from 6:30 to 9:00, cost of $70 includes hearty eating including salsa & chips, appetizer, main course. Cash bar. This lesson will feature TAMALES, a dish routinely butchered at most Mexican restaurants, but Erwin does particularly well -- he mentioned working with Kathleen Kennedy on the dish a couple of weeks ago in New York.
I was invited to attend a previous cooking session on mole sauce and it was outstanding. The crowd is small, like 15 or 16, mostly folks with links to Edible Boston magazine and also a Slow Foods group. Erwin was great with lots of info and technique, plenty of opportunity for hands on. Had the back room all to ourselves, and with the margaritas nearby we had an especially fun time. Highly recommended.
