The Masa Spreader Giveaway

December 22, 2009

Conrad learning to make tamales
C-man demonstrates the ease of tamale making. It took me years to develop a good masa technique. It took him five minutes.

You know you want one.  Well, I went back to Super A and got another one.  The masa spreader.  A tool I will never again be without at Christmas.  I kind of beat it to death in my tamale making post but that’s entirely because I love it so. I will wield it like a Colt 45 in pre-asphalt Los Angeles next Christmas.  And now you can, too.  Seriously, it’s amazing.  Watch the video:

Retweet the following and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a free, brand new, in-bag masa spreader:

RT @FeliciaFriesema Tamale making

…and then comment here telling me what your favorite tamale is. The masa spreader I’m giving away is like this, but in white.

Drawing will be held Christmas Day @ 12PM. A little late for THIS year’s holiday.  BUT you will be properly preparada for 2010, no?

Feliz Navidad y gracias!

    As if I could resist! I’m “tamarindball” on Twitter. 🙂

    My favourite tamale is the Oaxaca Chicken from my only decent local place, Que Pasa; I love the smoky-savoury taste of the achiote, and the lingering green aroma from the banana leaf it’s steamed in. mmmmmm!
