They say that in order to understand a culture, you have to taste it to understand it, and I agree. There are many angles and approaches that we can take to learn about a culture on another level that goes beyond visiting the monuments and museums (no shade btw! I do this too ) and lucky for us, it’s also accessible from home! What am I talking about? FOOD! Comida, aliment.

Mexico is a vast country with diversity on every level interlaced with a comforting sense of hospitability. Mexico is also dance and music, pueblos magicos (magical towns) turquoise waters, a rich, and deeply rooted culture of pre-Hispanic history and traditions. It is food, and it’s a time-honored connection to regional culture, language, story, and national pride. As more time passes, more of it is springing and blossoming onto the world.
