In Europe and North Africa, wheat has long been the base of our dietary habits and nutritional needs. From the traditional Spanish dish migas de pastor all the way to the Lebanese salad fattoush, this grain has been baked, fried, boiled, and blended in the most ingenious ways to satisfy the mouths of the hungry across all classes and tastes. One of the first foodstuffs to become a commodity on the futures exchanges, wheat is today the third most-produced cereal in the world.
In this meal-performance, Asunción Molinos Gordo will explore the current economy that revolves around the exchange of this vital good while presenting a series of dishes that have wheat as their main ingredient: gazpacho, couscous, pastries, cocas mallorquinas, and torrijas… among others.
