Course Description: We need to eat in order to survive, however, what we eat, how we eat it and wherewe do it is a cultural matter. Our society and its history are responsible for giving meaning to our culinary rites,which are part of our identity. Mexican identity is based on food, but not any food; maíz, tortilla, chile, tamales, pozole;food that symbolizes the story of two worlds colliding every time we take bite. We'll discover a little bit of thisstory by getting to know the origin, evolution, and cultural meaning of some of the most popular dishes in Mexico.
