Quinoa, amaranth and chia have long been food staples of the indigenous peoples of Mexico, Central and South America, in cultivation as many as 8,000 years ago by the Aztecs, Incas, and Mayans. Recent research shows them to be highly nutritious and able to be grown more sustainably than many other crops. Learn about the cultural and natural history of these plants and sample some delectable dishes paired with unique beers, made with a modern spin from these ancient staples by the gourmet chefs of Cornell Catering. Participants must be 21 or older and prepared to show proof of age.
