The regional lunches of Madrid Fusion Manila 2017 ended with the theme of “corn.” Various kinds of corn in all colors, textures, and sizes were used in different types of food–from juices and desserts to hot meals.
It’s only fitting that corn was the crop of choice for the last day because of how important corn is to Filipinos. It’s the second most important crop in the Philippines next to rice, with 1 out of 5 Filipinos having it as their staple food. It was exciting to see and taste how a simple crop, that is often fed to animals as well, was turned into gastronomic delights at the hands of talented chefs.
