The evening will be one part mexican history, one part culinary class, and totally delcious! We'll discuss the cultural and historical significance of maiz, clarify the difference between commodity and heritage varieties, and taste the rich depth of flavor of this ancient grain.

What's included:

  • A variety of delicious, light bites featuring heritage corn
  • Welcome beverage
  • In-depth and intimate conversation with an expert (aka the Queen of Corn!)






Joahna is keen advocate of tradition and Mexican culture founded Manos de Maiz to be the go-to place in D.C. for delicious, made from scratch Mexican street foods. As a Mexican national, Joahna grew up eating freshly made tortillas, nothing makes her feel closer to her roots than the taste of fresh ground corn.
