The Zenchilada, a new online magazine out of New Mexico, features a wonderful piece on Delta tamales and the Tamale Trail in its inaugural issue. The article is written by SFA friend and Craig Claiborne Lifetime Achievement Award winner Ronni Lundy. Scroll through the pages at the bottom of the website to get to the tamale article, which appears on pages 48-55.
This weekend, July 9 and 10, is being billed as “The Most Southern Weekend on Earth.” The Oxford American magazine is hosting a series of events in Clarksdale, featuring food, lectures and, of course, live music. As part of the event, Amy Evans Streeter, chief architect of the Tamale Trail, will be moderating a Mississippi Delta Hot Tamale Trail Talk & Tasting at Delta Amusement on Saturday, June 9 at 11 a.m. The event is free, so come on down, if you’re in the area!
