Heritage You Can Taste / by Maria Hinojosa | October 4, 2013

Heritage You Can Taste

UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization included traditional Mexican cuisine on its list of world cultural treasures worth preserving two years ago. A group of Mexican Academics have put together the first cookbook to be included on Unesco’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Latino USA’s Brenda Salinas talks to the book’s publisher, Margarita de Orellana from Artes de Mexico, and visits Chef Joe Quintana at his New York restaurant, Rosa Mexicano, to get a taste for what all the buzz is about. On the menu, the caviar of corn: huitlacoche crêpes.
