An Exploration of Mexican Heritage Corn

  • District Space DC 3522 12th Street Northeast Washington, D.C. 20017 (map)

Corn is life. It's origin, over 10,000 years ago in the valleys of Central and Southern Mexico, expanded north into Canada and as far south into Patagonia, has been the backbone of American life for centuries.  Manos de Maiz founder Joahna Hernandez (aka the Queen of Corn!) will take us on a journey from looking at corn as a commodity, to appreciating the impact of heritage corn on modern Mexican cuisine.

Join us for a fun evening where we'll discuss the cultural and historical significance of maize, clarify the difference between commodity and heritage varieties, and taste the rich depth of flavor of this ancient grain.
