Mexican cuisine recognized intangible cultural heritage by Unesco

It is said that you haven’t really visited Mexico until you’ve tried at least one of the delicious dishes that have made our gastronomy famous worldwide.

Without a doubt, Mexico ( as a country is rich in both natural beauty and living traditions that reflect centuries of history and ancestral cultural legacy. It is known as a place where people receive their guests with incomparable warmth and enormous smiles, always willing and eager to show a little more of what makes Mexico unique.

Nonetheless, Mexican cuisine is indisputably the main attraction that captivates locals and visitors alike.

What Makes Mexican Food Famous

Who has never tried enchiladas, guacamole or tacos? I would venture to guess that everyone who has visited Mexico, no matter what regions they have found themselves in, has tried at least one of these famous traditional dishes. Surely they were surprised by the richness, flavours and textures that they possess, not to mention the colourful presentation that, thanks to the special blend of ingredients, forms an attractive picture as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.

Our cuisine is a mix of different cultures, recognised worldwide for the masterful way it mixes spices, intense seasoning and a vibrant presentation. Above all else, our cuisine is appreciated for the way many of our dishes – the majority of which usually start with a base of corn, beans, spices, chilli peppers, tomatoes, onion and garlic – still preserve their pre-hispanic origins and are truly unique.
