I’m so happy to find your site! All your recipes are reminding me of my Chicana grandmother’s amazing cooking and our family’s Christmas tamale parties. And now I am inspired to recreate her delicious food. Where can I get a good quality molcajete in NYC that is not too expensive. I’ve seen some really nice ones, but they are $50 and up!
Hi Shanti! I’m glad you found us too! It’s great to hear that you’re bringing back some of the Chicano family traditions of your grandmother, especially the art of tamale making. $50 really isn’t too pricey if the molcajete is high quality and especially if it is pre-seasoned. You can buy a molcajete for around $30 at one of many little Mexican grocers on 116th street in East Harlem. There are a few between 3rd and 1st Avenues, just off the 116th street stop of the 6 train. Thanks for saying hello and I hope to hear about the recreations of your grandmothers dishes!
