grew up there and moved away long ago. Visiting this weekend and want to bring back good corn and flour tortillas, Mexican cheese, and tamales. Suggestions?? Muchas gracias

Anyone else miss Gourmet Magazine?

Totally agree. The sophistication and lack of playing down to the audience is sorely missed. I grew up with it and still grieve.

When I was in grad school in Ithaca, I talked some corn farmers into saving for me. It's called corn smut (yucky name). I have only had it fresh in Mexico since then. Good luck. I hope you find it for all of us!
