Episode 137: The Flower of Corn

When we were researching stories for Mexico, several people mentioned that we had to speak with Amado from Itanoni Restaurant, he is the “corn guru” they said.   His restaurant serves only the most traditional of Mexican foods, showcasing the various organic corns, harvest by local Oaxacan farmers in their purest form.  But beyond the taste of history and tradition, Amado brings a poetic truth about the power of this ancient grain.
