About Our Tamales

Our tamales by our made by Roberto Garcia, our wonderful prep chef of Mexican descent who loves to make tamales.

Fresh Strawberry Jam

Jack Motter from Ellwood Canyon Farms called me on Friday and asked if we needed some strawberries. “Sure,” I said, without thinking. I stared at the berries, wondering what to do with them.  Julia suggested we make an Agua Fresca (refreshing and delightful), but when I see a flat of strawberries, all I can think of is jam. As soon as I could, I got to work, and just a few hours later, produced a batch of beautiful red jam. It’s waiting for you at the Goodland Kitchen for $5.50 per jar (8 oz.).
