TRADE ROUTE TALKS: Ancient Grains of Mexico
 

Join Maite Gomez-Rejon for a series of monthly discussions about agriculture, trade and how our taste for foods have changed the landscape of our world. Students are greeted with a topical appetizer and, after the conversation, participate in the hands-on cooking of a dish which uses the theme of the day as the main attraction.

 

THEME:

Discover the loaded symbolism of maize and amaranth, two of the most important Native American grains. You will meet the pre-Colonial plant and the religious symbols associated with it, from its repression and a means of social control post-conquest mean to today's packaged flours.
 
MENU:

Memelas with black beans and queso cotija

Alegrias - amaranth, raisin, and pumpkin seed bars

 


* Please refrain from wearing colognes, perfume or scented lotions before class *
