Well interestingly enough, corn can be an allergen for some people. And so if you’re on a program where you’re really trying to clean out, I was testing all these recipes and I was on kind of a detox, like super-clean, to really try to get motivated. Like, what do I wanna eat? Right, right, right. ‘Cause sometimes constraints help you be really creative with recipes, right? Exactly. Necessity is the mother of invention. Well, thank you. That was much better said. But I was like, “I will kill someone for a taco right now” Right.
But I couldn’t have one. So one of my food editors actually came up with this brilliant idea of making a taco shell out of jicama. But there’s something about picking up a taco and eating it. Eating with your hands. Psychologically you’re like, “I’m not on a detox.” I’m not detoxing. I’m rolling with taco night.

These tacos look gorgeous, by the way and I think that’s what’s fun about this. It’s that mental fake-out that you’re eating something that’s not so great for you that you associate with being a little bad for you. Tuesday taco night or whatever. But really, it’s delicious and lovely and light. Okay I’m getting my tea and then I’m coming to sit with you. Another thing happened since I saw you last. (applause)
