Philly has a large community of skilled Latino cooks that due the COVID-19 crisis have lost their jobs and in most cases, unable to collect unemployment benefits. Help us support their economic needs and those of their families by purchasing a weekly dose of delicious tamales.
How it works: Each week we host different cooks and each week we have a different menu. 100% of the proceeds from the sales goes directly to the cooks making the tamales. Our tamales are made with fresh nixtamalized corn that we mill in house. This project is spearheaded and managed by chef Ana Caballero.
ORDERING & PICK UP DETAILS:
*Tamales must be purchased separately from other Lost Bread items*
PICKUP EVERY SUNDAY FROM THESE LOCATIONS:
Lost Bread Co, 1313 N Howard from 10am-3pm
Rival Bro's Coffee, 1100 Tasker St from 10am-2pm
Rivals Bro's Coffee, 2400 Lombard St from 10am-2pm
This week we are working with Jaime, a cook originally from Puebla, whose brother Sergio was one of our very first Proyecto Tamal participants. We had lots of fun with Sergio, who did a great mushroom tinga tamale—and also had the chance to share some wisdom in an Inquirer piece (read the last paragraph of the article). We expect to also enjoy working with Jaime on this week's selection of tamales and other tasty masa things.
Thanks as always and see you in the new year!
