Hola Mexico! We grill a whole cob of corn, then douse it with honey, chilli and white cheese. Maize is one of the world's oldest domesticated crop. Studies find that more than 10,000 years ago , there is evidence of its domestication in Mexico. Maize cultivation was dispersed south from Mexico around 6000BC where its cultivation became widespread in the inter-Andean valleys of Colombia. The word maize comes from the Caribbean Indigenous Taino word for the plant, mahiz. The six varieties of corn not only provide a widely eaten staple, but it is used for animal fodder and distillation for alcohol and biofuel.
