Dry roasted parch corn and tanyo kuro worms, Chicón, Peru. Asensia says her family always eats worms with parch corn. This is corn that dries completely on the stalk before harvesting. It's heated on the fire until its kernels plump up slightly. This makes a nutritionally sound combination: Corn and worms each lack essential amino acids, but together they provide a balanced meal.
