When asked to try one of those rare, uber-expensive delicacies, am I the only one who says, “Really?”
This time I was in Cabo San Lucas enjoying a fabulous dinner at Las Ventanas. Joaquim Costa, uber-charming DOFB, educated me about the uber-expensive delicacy known as huitlacoche. Literally translated it means corn smut (a fungus that forms on sweet corn). Apparently the flavor is supposed to be mushroom-like, sweet, savory, woody and earthy.
Unless you might offend someone, I would save your money.
The black filling oozing out of the quesadillas below is the huitlacoche!
