Mexican food is one of the best culinary experiences that people can have. Karla Souza
Mexican cuisine is a fusion of multiple cultures which involves a lot of gastronomy and religion. We go back more than 1,000 years in the history of food with the combination of indigenous people like Aztecas and Mayas, as well as with the union of Spanish, Lebanese, French, and Italian people. Mexico unites this – religion, historical moments, and culture – and exposes it in cooking. Chef Abraham Tamez
Mexican food is far more varied than people think. It changes like dialects. I was brought up in Jalisco by the sea on a basic diet – tomatoes, chillis, peppers of every size and rice, which is a Mexican staple. The Pacific coast has a huge array of seafood. Gael Garcia Bernal
Try The World: A Taste Of MEXICO: Mexican Cuisine has a very long, varied and rich history that dates back over 1,000 years. Like Mexico, the foods fuse influences from the Aztecs, Mayans, Europeans especially Spanish, Africans and Asians with indigenous cooking traditions/techniques. When I think of Mexican food, I see myself at a dining table having a feast of Tamales, Pescado, Sopes, Ceviche, Arroz Rojo, Fruta, Flan and many other mouthwatering Mexican dishes. If you’ve never ventured into the beautiful country of Mexico but would love to try some of their popular, satisfying, comfort foods with your friends and family, then the TTW – MEXICO subscription box has your name on it.
“My mother and my grandmother are pioneers of Mexican cuisine in this country, so I grew up in the kitchen. My mom, Zarela Martinez, was by far my biggest influence and inspiration – and toughest critic.” Chef Aaron Sanchez
As a kid, my happiness came from knowing that every Saturday we would cook an amazing feast for family and friends … We’d eat from the vendors at the market, traditional Mexican dishes like pozole, quesadillas with mushrooms and epazote, menudo or barbacoa. Chef Abraham Tamez
People like to blame Mexican food, but look at what’s happening globally, look at all the fast foods and products filled with trans fat. Before the Mexican Revolution, a hundred years ago, people were eating what now macrobiotics tells us to eat, corn, black beans, rice. That’s what people were eating – and chile peppers. That’s a healthy diet. And also they ate a lot of vegetables. Sandra Cisneros

“To understand Mexican culture you must see at first hand how the catholic faith melded with a system of pagan beliefs to make a uniquely, truly Mexican religion. The same melding holds true for our distinctive cuisine. It is mestizo – “hybridized,” “of mixed blood,” a concept central to our identity – and it took time to develop.” Chef Zarela Martinez Food from my Heart: Cuisines of Mexico Remembered and Reimagined
As Americans, we tend to look at Mexican food as nachos, which is not Mexican food really – they don’t eat them. Anthony Bourdain
Let’s get one thing straight: Mexican food takes a certain amount of time to cook. If you don’t have the time, don’t cook it. You can rush a Mexican meal, but you will pay in some way. You can buy so-called Mexican food at too many restaurants that say they cook Mexican food. But the real food, the most savory food, is prepared with time and love and at home. So, give up the illusion that you can throw Mexican food together. Just understand that you are going to have to make and take the time. Denise Chavez
