Why We Eat: Chongos Zamoranos Scarica

  • 5 gen 2020

  • Claudette Zepeda, chef and amateur Mexican food anthropologist, unpacks chongos zamoranos, a unique-looking Mexican dessert made from milk curds, cinnamon, and sugar that dates back to the 16th century and the Spanish colonization of Michoacán. The recipe, which is essentially a cheese making process, calls for animal rennet, milk, and egg yolks to coagulate slowly in a warm pot. As the curds form, Claudette cuts them and spices them with Mexican cinnamon and lots of sugar. The finished product may look strange, but tastes rich and sweet, and holds its place in Mexican food history. Check out the recipe here: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/a3...

    Can she get her own show? I was brought to the states at age of 8 and didn't get a chance to learn my history that well. Its horrible since I find it to be so great and interesting. Hopefully I see more from here on munchies.

    Cheesemaking propably stems from people storing Milk in the stomach's of mammals, noticing that the not-so-properly washed ones made the milk curd.
