Yucatecan cuisine is renowned for taste and
freshness. The culinary delights of a typical Yucatecan kitchen come
from a mouth watering mixture of European and Mexican flavors.
A bit of
history will explain this strong European influence. Once upon a time
the Yucatecan peninsula was considered to be too far away and too
difficult to reach from the rest of Mexico. Mountainous terrain and
very poor roads kept the peninsula isolated.
Having ports with
commercial and cultural contacts with Europe (especially France), New
Orleans and Cuba, the Yucatecans were easily influenced by many aspects
of these countries, such as dress, architecture and cooking, which
explains why there is a lot of European flare in its cuisine.
These are combined with
sauces, chilies and spices that will satisfy the most jaded palate.
Yucatecans are a proud people and they have much to be proud of. Get to
know the culture and you will see why!
