SFA Investigates Hot Tamales

In cooperation with Viking Range Corporation, Southern Foodways Alliance oral historian, Amy Evans, is on the road again. This time she's in search of those legendary bundles of meat and masa found throughout the Mississippi Delta: hot tamales. Her route will take her to Clarksdale, Greenville, Greenwood and points in between, where she'll be mapping and documenting a Mississippi Delta Hot Tamale Trail. If you know of any cooks or vendors Amy should include on her trek, please email suggestions here: Look for the completed project to appear in printed form and on-line at
