PHILADELPHIA - As the weather outside becomes frightful, there is no better way to warm up than with authentic hot tamales that are sure to be delightful. On Saturday, December 10th, Jet Wine Garden will host a one-day-only Tamale Market from 2 pm -- 5 pm, with a portion of proceeds from food sales donated to Puentes de Salud; a non-profit organization that promotes the health and well-being of the Latino immigrant community in South Philadelphia through high-quality medical services, innovative education programs, and community development (and neighbor to Jet Wine Bar).
While sipping on a specialty cocktail, rumored to be a mezcal spiked hot chocolate, attendees will enjoy tamales from some of Philly's top chefs: Culinary Director of Sojourn Philly, Lucio Palazzo, will be representing Jet Wine Bar and hosting a plethora of talented local chefs in the garden, including Chef Brendan Fox from sister restaurant Rex at The Royal, Chefs Mariana and Julio with their pop-up Victoria en Philly, Chef Reuben Asaram from Reuby, Chef Nia Minard (who will be dishing out Mississippi hot tamales), and many more!
Each chef will tout their own assortment of tamales, adding their signature styles and cooking prowess to create a variety of tamale iterations. All tamales will be sold separately by chefs in a “pay as you go” style setting, with prices ranging from $3 to $8 each.
