Mexican cuisine began around 9,000 years ago when the agricultural communities formed domesticating maize, which created a standard process of corn nixtamalization. The original Mexican cuisine consisted of native foods, such as corn, beans, squash, amaranth, chia, avocados, tomatoes, tomatillos, cacao, vanilla, agave, turkey, spirulina, sweet potato, cactus and chili pepper. It wasn’t until after the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire that Europeans introduced domesticated animals (beef, pork, chicken, goat and sheep) as well as dairy products (cheese and milk.)
Today, Mexican cuisine is classified into 7 regions, each having it’s own unique style (Chiapas, Mexico City, Northern Mexico, Oaxaca, Veracruz, Western Mexico and Yucatan.) Our Mexican recipes are both flavorful and combine Mexico’s rich history into each of our dishes.
