A Taste of the Maya World


A Taste of the Maya World

18 OCTOBER 2012
6:30 – 9:00 pm
Cooking demonstration and tasting dinner at the Mexican Cultural Institute.
The Yucatan Peninsula is known as the culinary outlier in Mexico because it boasts a cuisine so distinct from the rest of the country that it occupies its own universe of flavors. Explore how a pumpkin seed sauce can enhance regular enchiladas, savor Venison marinated in a Bitter Orange sauce and learn why there is a dessert called “Poor Gentleman” that can make anyone a wealthy patron.

  • I recently vacationed in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, and enjoyed their cuisine. I had a salbute with a spicy red pork topping reminds me of cochinita pibil or what I know it as asado de puerco. Those were delicious reminded me of a gorditas very common in South Texas. Will you have any episodes of that cuisine of Mexico?

    • Pati Jinich

      Yes, absolutely, I’m planning on it. You know, Ricardo, the cuisine from Yucatán is so unique from the rest of Mexico.
