Trade Route Talks: Ancient Grains of MexicoAugust 10, 2018
Tuesday 10/23 at 7:00pm
The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories
Join me for a brand new 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.
Discover the loaded symbolism of maize and amaranth, the most important Native American grains. You will meet the pre-Colonial plants and the religious symbols associated with them, from their repression and means of social control post-conquest to today’s industrial packaged flours. ($45)
Classes meet at The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories
