America may have earned its reputation as the 'fast food nation' but it is also home to a wealth of food traditions and agricultural diversity.
Among the 140 U.S. foods listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste (http://bit.ly/173Rfdd) is Chapalote Corn: originally domesticated by Mesoamericans, it was the first variety to be cultivated in the area that is today the USA. The plants are perfectly adapted to the arid subtropical climates and the variety was once a staple food for the American Indians.
Today farmers and chefs believe it can rise again.
