Delta Tamalero

A new chef has settled in Charleston, bringing her Mississippi and California roots with her.

Chef Amanda Ivy began arousing excitement when she announced she and her food truck Low Ivy Catering were coming to the Capitol City. She has since pivoted into a different pop-up concept, as well as made-to-order tamales.

She has been offering two different styles per week, with one being vegetarian. You simply can email her and indicate how many dozen you would like. I went with a dozen of the pimento cheese, which I simply warmed up in the microwave and added some sour cream and scallions for a delicious snack. 

Some of the others she's offered include: 
Pulled pork 
Sweet potato masa and collard green
Oaxacan chicken mole
Cheeto and pimento cheese
Black bean
Pork tinga
Flaming hot chicken and pepperjack
Potato and pepperjack

Which have been your favorite?
