Tamales as art

Printmaker turned performance artist Jenny Leblanc rolls hot tamales with her family at The Front Gallery (4100 St. Claude Avenue, 504-920-3980), weekends through December 6th, noon-5 pm.  Read Times-Picayune art critic Doug MacCash’s take on the performance.  Sadly, MacCash neglects to mention the important part:  how did the tamales taste?  As compared, say, to Manuel’s (RIP), or Old Style (Gretna), or D&S (Houma), or the meat-n-masa-all-mixed-up style of tamale as sold by Joe Sepie’s in old Jefferson?
