Chicken Tamales with Tomatillo-Cilantro Salsa
Anna Zepaltas, whose husband, Ryan, makes wine at Siduri and his own Zepaltas wines, learned to prepare these light and fluffy tamales from her Mexican-born mother. Zepaltas carries on the teaching tradition by giving her friends a tamale tutorial on Harvest Widow Fridays; everyone goes home with several ready-made meals for the week ahead.
