Course on the Cuisines of Mexico

Course on the Cuisines of Mexico

In 2016 we created the very first Master on the Cuisines of Mexico, now we desing the Course on the Cousines of Mexico.

The different cuisines of Mexico represent us and are part of our collective identity, capable of being preserved and left for future generations. This link between the past, the present, and the future is important, as well as the awareness of this Heritage. Food being as much a part of our daily lives as breathing has not been considered, until the consequences of the loss of our food culture has made societies sick.
Institutional effort is required and that is why we come to you.
How? revaluing, recovering flavors and knowledge.

Through theoretical-practical virtual sessions, the most important aspects that have shaped traditional Mexican cuisine will be taught, from their historical, cultural, demographic and geographical perspectives. Elements will be provided to identify techniques and ingredients that are part of Traditional Mexican Cuisine, their origins, and applications.
Each module of the degree will provide students with a dossier and a recipe book with the most representative dishes from different points in history, as well as information about techniques and regions that are addressed.

Each module will consist of videos and informational material describing the corresponding topic. For the practical part, there will be videos in which our instructors prepare the corresponding recipes.
