TRADITIONS AND CUSTOMS IN MEXICO

Mexico, the setting for millennia of civilizations and the meeting point of two worlds, is a country that may be understood as a harmonious dance between the past and the present.

The ancestral traditions and customs that are found throughout the length and breadth of Mexican territory—in the sea, on land, in forests and mountains—are the product of both our history and the megadiversity of our land. It is not by chance that in Nahuatl Mexico means “the navel of the moon.”

It is precisely for this reason, for its capacity to preserve and promote the historical, cultural, and natural wealth of Mexico that Mexican traditional cuisine has been included by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Through this declaration it contributes to promoting a “comprehensive cultural model comprising farming, ritual practices, age-old skills, culinary techniques and ancestral community customs and manners.”

Dishes are born through the perfect interplay of aromas, flavors, and colors. Mexican cuisine is fiestas, traditions, and history all brought together at the table.
