The national honor is given to artisan food producers who use fresh and sustainable ingredients and whose food tastes delicious. It’s given in 15 categories, from beer and...
At first glance, the curious implement—a carved, hand-painted wooden stick, 11.5 inches long, with a slender handle at one end and a knob at the other—appears unprepossessing enough. Yet the kitchen tool, currently on display as part of the "Mexican Treasures of the Smithsonian" exhibition at the S. Dillon Ripley Center in Washington, D.C., represents the history of a culture and the epic story of a passionately desired product. The molinillo, or stirrer—this one dating from the 1930s—is a...
