Nothing compares to the pleasure of eating homemade corn tortillas hot and fresh off the stove. The signature earthy sweetness and flexible texture all comes down to one thing: heirloom corn kernels which are transformed into fresh, fragrant masa.
Corn is historically central to the Mexican diet and holds an important place in the social, economic, and cultural fabric of the country. It has sustained Mexican communities for generations. “In Mexico, corn has a sacred aspect to it,” says Chef Gabriela Cámara. “Corn is really central to the health and well-being of the people.”
