TABLE TALK: AGAVE

In the hot arid land of Central America agave grows.  Have you seen it?  A grass like succulent growing into a circular rosette in the desert?  Maybe you haven't seen one, but you've tasted its sap, its nectar, created in its strong fleshy leaves from the almost nonexistent liquid water.  Indigenous to Mexico, modern humans have cultivated the sap to create sweetness, and potent drinks like mezcal, tequila, and pulque.  But agave is so much more than a resource for our consumption.  It is an invitation to experience cultural heritage. It has witnessed two of the most significant human transformations in world history here in Mesoamerica.  It has the potential to be a weapon against climate change.  It can unlock secrets into ancient beverage production and tradition.  Agave has much to tell us, and we will give it our undivided attention in our series Table Talk during the months of July and August.  Agave will be our anchor as we taste the distillations, the smokes, the steams, and learn more about its heritage through live interviews with specialists of the many fields with which agave intersects.

Check the calendar below for all Table Talk events.
