On these journeys I have discovered many delicious treasures - the mighty grains that nourished the world's greatest ancient civilizations. I call them our Grains of Discovery, and I've brought their stories home to share with you. Like this story of quinoa. Native to South America, this amazing plant was domesticated thousands of years ago near Lake Titicaca, high on the plateaus of the Andes. It was a mainstay in the diet of the ancient Incas, who considered it a sacred crop. I hope you enjoy exploring the culinary and nutritional wonders of ancient grains with quinoa and all of our Grains of Discovery. To your good health, Bob Moore.
