The large amount of ingredients in Mexican cuisine results in dishes that are striking and pleasing to the eye and the palate.
The flavors of Mexican gastronomy are so unique, coming from the fusion of the Hispanic and Spanish cultures that it also added the spice to the traditional dishes.
Since then this merger has been enriched by many contributions from around the world, making Mexican food a very popular choice for weddings, for its presentation, its taste, its contrasts and its versatility.
Why does the world love Mexican food?
In 2010, Mexican gastronomy was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Thanks to this, it was praised that the cuisine in Mexico is considered a crucial element of national identity, due to its history, creativity, diversity and transcendence.
The United States is probably the foreign country where Mexican food is most famous. The continuous increase of the Hispanic population in the United States, led by the Mexicans, has allowed the taste for Mexican food to expand in a surprising way throughout the United States, mainly in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
Currently, the number of Mexican restaurants throughout the country is very high. There are also quite a few restaurants that offer a Mexican type menu, where you can find pozole, a dish from the Mexican states of Jalisco and Michoacan, also carne asada, a typical dish from the northern region of Mexico.
Typical Mexican cuisine fits both the daily table and the most gourmet environments. And for a wedding, the proposals are many.
