Michoacán helped México and Mexican traditional cuisine earn the UNESCO designation in the list of intangible cultural heritage. Once you visit Michoacán and taste its food, you realize why, in an instant. Michoacán has not one, but many regional cuisines and this session focuses on that of the Purépechas.
