The #holidays are approaching and that means time for PASTELES EN HOJA (DOMINICAN STYLE TAMALES)! This delicious, labor intensive dish is a Caribbean holiday tradition. Pasteles en Hoja is a plantain and root vegetables masa (dough) filled with meat and made into a pocket using plantain leaves. It is similar to Mexican Tamales in method, but uses different ingredients. This season, Cafecito del Arte in East Harlem is offering gourmet Pasteles en Hojas!
