I'm Liz Sanchez, President/Owner of CASA de TAMALES.
My inspiration for tamales comes from my Grandmother,
who owned & operated a tortilla business in Mexico for
over 10 years. Developing her own unique way of making
masa, her tortillas were hailed as the best in the area.
Her knowledge of masa evolved into working with
tamales, opening up a whole new world of possibilities.
Fortunately, recipes were saved.
Following in her pioneering footsteps, I'm continuing
her legacy by bringing back her Old World style and
fusing it with modern concepts. Old World meets New.
Here are the two ladies responsible for my being here.
They're to blame.
Thankfully, I've visited my Grandma in her own town, La Piedad,
Michoacán, Mexico. It's a beautiful city full of history. Everyone in
town was wonderful to me. Some recognized me and knew who
my family was, at first sight, just because I look so much like my
Mom (who grew up there). Someday, I hope to visit there, again.
In this photo, My Grandma had come over from Mexico just for
my Grand Opening. I was truly grateful she was able to be here
for me. She was really happy one of her grandchildren had chosen
to continue in her footsteps and further her craft of making masa.
She was blown away by some of the extremes I had created, like
Blueberry masa that's actually Blue. My Grandma always swings
by my store whenever she's in Fresno. She said it's the only place
where she can enjoy a great tamale. Best compliment, ever!
With a solid foundation built on the past, and with a vision for the future, we bring the richness of Mexico to you,
offering tastes long forgotten.
