Mexico & Guatemala Mano a Mano

14 MARCH 2017 | 6:45 PM
Mexican Cultural Institute, Washington, DC

Cooking Demo and Tasting Dinner
For centuries, Guatemala and Mexico formed part of the viceroyalty of New Spain under the Spanish Colony. From 1821 onwards, Mexico and Guatemala went on separate paths, however, their kitchens retain the memory of their shared past, not only under the Spaniards but also of their Maya heritage. Join us as Mexican Chef Pati Jinich and Guatemalan Chef Mirciny Moliviatis participate in a mano a mano, of ingredients and dishes, that both unite and distinguish Mexican and Guatemalan cooking.
