I was recently invited to a cookery masterclass that explored Mexican culture through its cuisine and specifically Tamales at Mestizo London restaurant to celebrate the release of Disney Pixar’s COCO on Blu-ray & DVD. Tamales are steamed, corn-husk-clad masa delights. They are Mexican-style comfort food that can be eaten for breakfast or as a twilight snack. Coco is one of Pixar’s best animation movies of the last few years: so rich in colours, details and amazing music. Read my review of Disney’s Coco to find out why both our Kids Club and I loved it so much.

COCO follows 12 year old Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) who dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt)—despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music.
Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Héctor (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
