Cooking like a Local in Riviera Maya

About 1 year(s) ago by 4Worlds Expeditions
“Stay adventurous” is advice frequently given by seasoned travelers. Stay adventurous when you are taking photos, by trying unusual perspectives… stay adventurous when visiting new places by asking questions of the local people. Stay adventurous by trying unusual or exotic meals, or even by cooking them… Yes of course, cooking them, why not?
 
For many travelers the Riviera Maya is the first encounter with Mexican culture. Usually they visit this amazing paradise in search only of a luxurious experience in the Mexican Caribbean. But when they get here and start to hear about cenotes and the magical subterranean rivers, about the Maya and their ancient cities, well, they just discover Mexico’s real beauty.
 
 And for those who want to go a little bit further - to the kitchen for example - there are some delicious options in the Riviera Maya too. You don’t need to be a chef to appreciate the Mexican cuisine’s delicacies. You just need to prepare your senses for this delicious adventure…
 
 We meet in a small hotel in Puerto Morelos, (approximately half-way between Cancun and Playa del Carmen). The chef talks about Pre-Hispanic and colonial heritage in the Mexican cuisine and then explains the recipes you’re going to prepare and taste. He takes you through the easiest salsa or guacamole to the most artful Mexican dishes, such as “chile relleno” (stuffed chilli), or mole poblano (a very traditional mole sauce which originated in Puebla). Within no time you will gain confidence and start to enjoy the many flavors, aromas and textures.

Mexican people love color in their meals. They also love strong flavors. Mexican cuisine is influenced by European, African, and even Asian cultures, but to this day, maintains pre-Hispanic ingredients and procedures. The diversity of ingredients, the way to cook them… if you put all of this together, well, you get an intangible world heritage, just as UNESCO named it. It’s a flavored and colorful adventure… do you dare to live it?
