"The Gastronomy of Mexico has a great diversity of typical dishes, which is why it was recognized by UNESCO as Intangible Heritage of Humanity."
Mexican cuisine is known for its succulence and its great variety. Its origins date back to the pre-Hispanic period, when a large number of dishes revolved around corn, along with other ingredients such as: chili peppers, beans, squash, avocado, tomato, cocoa, nopal, rabbit meat, armadillo and turkey, as well as insects, frogs, turtles and a wide variety of fruits such as plums and pitayas.
With the arrival of the Spaniards, there was also a miscegenation in gastronomy and pre-Columbian dishes were enriched with the introduction of fruits, sugar, oil, cereals such as wheat, spices such as oregano and black pepper, cattle, sheep, chickens. , pigs, milk and rice, among others.
Thus were born the dishes that have made Mexican Gastronomy world famous such as: mole, chiles en nogada, lime soup, cochinita pibil, carnitas and the famous tacos, among others.
