Corn Trail: Chef Gloria Carillo’s Patasca and Chicha


A tropical, organic, authentic soup/stew dish, Patasca, is paired with a cool refreshing non alcoholic drink, Chicha, in this Bolivian-focussed demo by chef Gloria Carillo. 

Corn or “maize” was first 'domesticated' in the campo (rural areas) and migrated with Indigenous people across the continent. Today it has become a staple in the recipes of kitchens throughout el centro (urban centres). Join us for the delicious Corn Trail food series where we are encouraged to understand where we come from by following the corn!
