Event description

Description

Come experience the long story of corn's development as one of the world's premier foods, its place in Mexican culture and gastronomy, and its gradual transition to the Great Lakes area where large corn farms were cultivated by the Peoples of the Longhouse, the Huron-Wendat (and later the Seneca) in villages all across the Toronto area long before Europeans arrived here. We'll learn how these two different Indigenous cultures, in Mexico and around the Great Lakes, interacted and worked with corn while enjoying delicious samples from both cultures and from Maizal Cafe's superb kitchen.

This event is presented in conjunction with the new exhibit, Destination Canada on display in the Toronto Reference Library’s TD Gallery.
