It’s great to see such a prominent local Mexican restaurant not only making their own masa but using Oaxacan corn. El Molino Central has been quite a project so it’s gratifying to see all those lines out the door. It’s even more gratifying to see them put their money into supporting native corn species in Mexico. As their poster notes, NAFTA was devastating to the practice and business of preserving these species. They’re only now coming back because so many people have been devoted to them – thanks to all the great people that are working on projects like this.
