by Ellen Riojas Clark and Carmen Tafolla
Professor Ellen Riojas Clark and award-winning author Carmen Tafolla team up in this woman-led project to create a beautiful gift that wraps the culture of the community like a steaming tamal! Noted UTSA Professor of Bicultural Bilingual Studies, Ellen Riojas Clark, and award-winning author Carmen Tafolla combined their own experiences and family stories with the memories, recipes and artwork of many San Antonio writers, artists, historians, journalists, business people and other public figures to create a work that will delight tamale aficionados and introduce others to the cultura of this most basic element of the cuisine of the Americas. Tamales, Comadres And The Meaning Of Civilization, by Ellen Riojas Clark, Ph.D. and Carmen Tafolla, Ph.D., is a staple I recommended last year and I continue to recommend it as a holiday gift cookbook because it is a real cultural gem. Dr. Ellen Riojas Clark and her comadre, Dr. Carmen Tafolla, are the two authors, real comadres. Read more about Ellen Riojas Clark and Carmen Tafolla
