A little-known aspect of Mexico’s culinary legacy, traditional fermented maize beverages will be the subject of an illustrated lecture by Dr. Cesar Ojeda Linares. His research has documented a previously unrecognized diversity in these beverages, and explored the associated microbial-human interactions as a part of traditional ecological knowledge.
This event is a part of the 2nd annual Pueblos del Maíz in Tucson, AZ, presented by the UNESCO Tucson Creative City of Gastronomy. In partnership with three other designated food heritage cities — San Antonio, TX, Merida MX, and Puebla MX — Tucson will host the first weekend of a month-long international food and culture celebration. The festivities will include regional food vendors, chef demonstrations, live music and entertainment, educational panels, art installations, and so much more celebrating the rich traditions of maíz.
Join us May 4th to 7th in Tucson, Arizona to launch this monthlong event! Visit the Pueblos del Maíz website to learn more https://www.pueblosdelmaiz.com/
