Nine yeas ago when I started this blog, one of my goals was to introduce my family in the United States to the flavors that are part of my gastronomic memory and preserve them for next generations.

You cannot imagine my happiness when NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™, a brand with which I grew up with, asked me for a recipe to pair a good cup of coffee. The recipe had to be related to my Hispanic heritage in general, and Venezuelan in particular.

The idea was to enjoy it with my family. Coffee should be served in the iconic red mug that identifies Nescafé worldwide. It was funny because I cannot count all the red Nescafé mugs I have in my kitchen cabinets.

We are all made of corn

This torta de jojoto is simply perfect to celebrate my heritage. After all, as the ancient Popol Vuh —the Book of Creation of the Central American K’iche people—, says: we are all made of corn.

Corn is America’s crop, from Canada to the Argentinian Patagonia. In Venezuela we use to make arepas, cachapas, empanadas, hallacas, hallaquitas, mandocas and also this delicious torta de jojoto.

The Best Venezuelan Torta de Jojoto

If you visit me regularly, you may have noticed that this is not exactly a blog devoted to Venezuelan cuisine. However, here you find many of the recipes that are part of Venezuela’s culinary traditions. And this is what this delicious corn pudding is all about.

In Venezuela, corncobs are called “jojotos”. This torta de jojoto, is a cousin of the delicious Mexican pan de elote and the American cornbread that is always present in the Thanksgiving dining table.

Its texture is more like the one of a pudding. Not very sweet, really moist, it tastes like sweet corn. It can be eaten warm, at room temperature or cold, and you can also serve it for breakfast, dessert or as a snack … and yes: paired with a good cup of steaming Nescafé

Why I prefer Nescafé

Nescafe by enrilemoine

What I like the most about Nescafé is not only how easy it is to make a cup of coffee, but its bold coffee flavor. Not to mention its aroma that perfumes my days. It tastes and smells like family. And because it was my mom’s coffee choice, for me Nescafé is home. Simply!

And there is more. For only $ .06 you have a cup of 100% pure coffee and with a 7-ounce jar you have 100 cups of 100% pure coffee in your pantry.
