Join La Borinqueña at Eat Real Festival 2010 :: Jack London Square :: Sat 8/28 & Sun 8/29

Find us in the La Borinqueña akaTamale Girl booth during Eat Real Festival the last Sat & Sun of August 2010 for Craft Collaborations in the Urban Homesteding Zone near the fountain in Jack London Square. Map here. 
Tamales With La Borinqueña Mex-icatessen, Llano Seco Rancho and Queso Salazar
Three family food crafters come together to focus their collective talents in the form of the perfect tamale. With generations of practice behind La Borinqueña Mex-icatessen’s fresh corn masa, Llano Seco Rancho’s organic, humanely-raised pork and Queso Salazar’s traditional queso fresco, it’s a tour de force in tastiness.

We'll have two delicious varieties of tamales available including:
  • Organic Llano Seco Rancho Pork with red chile 

  • Queso Salazar's Queso Fresco with fire roasted Anaheim green chiles (vegetarian)

    As a third generation Tamale Girl, I'm excited to be collaborating with two family owned companies for this event. All three companies have a legacy going back decades!

    Collectively, that is how many years La Borinqueña, Queso Salazar & Llano Seco Rancho families have been creating our foodstuffs! Click on the links to read more about our indie business histories. I'm proud to be keeping such company and you will taste the love and care in these awesome tamales.

    Stop by say hola, get a tamale and meet Chayito, La Borinqueña's main tamale assembler. She and I will also be hosting Make your own Tamales at the DIY Foods workshop, Saturday 8/28 at 1pm.

    From the Eat Real Newsletter:
    A few days from today the good times will roll. Tamales packed with queso fresco, burgers, crazy good dogs, tacos of all tipos, curries and chaat, everything delicious and everything under $5. Beer, popsicles, and ice cream to keep the heat at bay, spicy noodles and chili to bring it on.

    Adding to the delicious mix of 80+ authentic street food vendors, we've put together craft collaborations where local foodmakers (coffee roasters, cheesemakers, jammers, pork magicians, and more) serve their products with style. Eat Real is your portal to food skills in 2010, with everything you need to know to feed yourself good food in the urban jungle. Get ready for goats & chickens on site, hands-on workshops on jamming, curdling and all sorts of fermentation, butchery competitions, noodle pulling demos, and more.
