ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — Students in Round Rock are taking their lessons from the classroom to the kitchen this week. Both the culinary and Spanish classes came together for a tamalada — a tamale-making party.
The Cedar Ridge High School students gathered to make pork, chicken and raja tamales. The process isn’t fast — so they started work Wednesday and were expected to finish after working all day Thursday as well.
“It makes me like really, really proud to know like they really care about the Hispanic culture,” said Danna Quiriarte, a junior. “And a lot of people come together because they’re really interested or they just want to try something new.”
The students donned aprons as they prepared the fillings and crafted the tamales.
