Ancient Grains - Quinoa

23m 32s

When you open your pantry, do images of the rugged mountains of South America, the colorful tablelands of Africa and the fertile river valleys of the Middle East dance before your eyes?

The legends behind their origins many millennia past, their loss over time and their ultimate modern revival - literally tell the story of civilization.
