Primavera Tamales
Agua Caliente, California
Handmade tortillas, tamales and salsas
www.primaveratamales.com

Twenty eight years ago Karen Taylor, the owner of Primavera, made her first recipe from Diana Kennedy’s “The Cuisines of Mexico. Working as a chef the following 12 years in a Mexican restaurant in Sonoma allowed her to develop a relationship with the food from a country where the real cuisines were so different from what was available in the United States. Traveling to Oaxaca, Mexico City and Michoacan to take further classes helped further refine her understanding and appreciation of Mexican cuisine.

After starting Primavera Tamales in 1992, Karen and her partner, Maurilla Pineda, began to sell at the Berkeley Farmer’s market. At this organic urban market she met the farmers who supply Primavera with the cases of vine ripened tomatoes, butternut squash and other ingredients for their food.  In 1998 Primavera purchased a 2,000 lb. used stone corn grinder and Primavera started making their own stone-ground organic masa.

Today Primavera employs 30 people and is offered in many stores in the Bay Area.
