YUCA, not yucca
Tapioca is an other-worldly food. I love the pearls in pudding and starch as a thickener, but I still find it odd. Many people think it is a grain, like wheat, but it is processed as a product of the cassava plant. You may know it as yuca, which can be found from Brazil to Nigeria, but don’t confuse it for yucca, the similar-sounding decorative plant that is related to the Joshua Tree. And whatever you do, don’t eat a Joshua Tree, ha. The Park behind the next Call would probably like for me to reiterate that point –don’t eat Joshua Tree; but DO make art inspired by them. Take a look…
