Discover bean stories from all around the world! The series “Behind the Seeds” was initiated at Terra Madre 2022, Slow Food’s international convention in Turin, where the Global Bean team took the opportunity to record stories of bean lovers, seed savers and activists around the world. Hear about how they grow legumes, what the traditions are in their region and what are their favourite preparation methods and recipes.
For our 10th episode of “Behind the Seeds,” we spoke with Omar Rodriguez at Terra Madre, last year’s Slow Food Congress in Turin. He is from Honduras and works as a coffee producer. Besides coffee, he is also passionate about beans! As he explained, in Honduras corn and beans are staple foods with black and red beans being the most commonly used varieties.
